cake project

When I started making Trader Joe's vanilla cake mix over the weekend, I realized it's just too sweet. I don't like super sweet sugary bad for you things anymore. I was going to make a pound cake for Nick's birthday cake and I just can't do it! Sorry to all of my guests in advance - but I'll be doing you a favor instead! Today is the start to my cake project. I'm going to attempt to make a healthy cake for Nick's birthday party in less than 2 weeks. I'm hoping one of the first ones works out. I'm using a bread pan to make train cars. The icing itself will have enough sugar in it as well as the decorations (candy) so the cake itself is going to be a non-sugar laden somewhat healthy base. I'll keep you updated as I go through my trials.


  1. I can't wait to see the finished product! I made cupcakes for Em's 2nd birthday but you are definitely going a healthier route!! Good luck!

  2. I look forward to seeing the results. I have yet to make a cake because it seems too complicated! But I know you can make it work. =)

  3. I'm of the opinion that the phrase "healthy cake" is an oxymoron, but good luck with your endeavor!

  4. I like cake! Good luck with your cake project!
