Happy Valentines day


Before I left for my trip I made my hubby who was staying behind a early valentines day gift. Nothing says I love you like a Chocolate Beet Cake. (right?)

I found this recipe in the costco connection magazine that came in January and since I had some beets laying around that needed to be used before I left, I thought this would be a good treat.

Overall the cake was easy to make and good, not too sweet but it was bit dense and heavy in texture. It was a good try for my first beet cake. The fruits on top which I added was a good touch it not only made it pretty but nice to eat together.


If anyone has some beets laying around and want to try this, here is the link.

HAVE A GREAT VALENTINES DAY....

What an interesting idea. I know that beets were used for sugar for a long time, but I'd never thought about eating them other than pickled or in soup. Thanks for the recipe! Your cake looks beautiful.

Come back so I can shop! I've got an itch for some new fabrics and I LOVE your shop too much to buy from someone else before I have the chance to look at what you have.

Also, I hope you're having a fantastic vacation!
