Friday’s Fixin’s: Austin’s Carrot Pineapple Birthday Cake


Ohhhh, I’m giddy about today’s Friday’s Fixin’s post because this recipe is a doozie of deliciousness. For book club this week, a dear girlfriend, Cynthia Spivey, offered to bring dessert. Hmmm, let me see: “Y.E.S.!”

She arrived with the most yummy looking cake and told me that it is one of her daughter’s faves. Not only that but it was vegan. Ummm, cue the Happy Dance!

Cynthia said, “You’re the guinea pig because I’ve never made it vegan.”  Well let me just say that I would be the guinea pig for ANYTHING that Cynthia tries.  She’s amazingly talented and also happens to be a real Silver Lining in my life.

Cynthia: Thank you so much for sharing!
