It's National Carrot Cake Day
Can you believe it? National Carrot Cake day is here! Gotta get me some.
Carrot cake has an interesting history. No - really. According to the World Carrot Museum (yes - this is a thing) the carrot cake dates back to Medieval times.
In fact, according to Molly O'Neill, there is a report that George Washington was served a carrot tea cake in 1783.
Well, if it is good enough for the Father of our Country then it is good enough for me. It will be my civic duty to consume some carrot cake today. More on that later.
I got my carrot cake from Hey Hey Cupcake.
