We recently celebrated Gracie’s 3rd birthday on Friday and had a lovely party at home. Gracie had the best time and Mummy and Daddy were exhausted! I’ve had a few people contact me since and ask what kind of food we ended up making, so I’ve popped the low down here.
No Birthday, would be complete without a Birthday Cake. I decided to turn one of Gracie’s favourite recipes from Live Love Nourish into a cake. I doubled the ratio of Casey-Lee’s delicious banana bread and then frosted it following her Coconut Frosting recipe (I coloured it with Beetroot powder) – it was a big hit!
I also baked Paleo Carrot Cakes , ever since I started making these Gracie goes mad for them! They’re absolutely delicious and with 4 cups of carrots used this in the recipe, I’d say that’s a win! I also made Chocolate Zucchini Muffins , you would never know these had zucchini in them and no refined sugar, they’re so easy to make and really delicious. And finally, I baked Apple and Cinnamon Donuts packed full of apple and can be made gluten-free, these were a huge hit!
- Chopped cucumber and carrots with hummus
- Fruit Platters
- Souvlaki sticks
