I want your chocolate carrot cake recipe.

I would've baked the cake, too. People need to settle down and stop acting like a special cake for hurt feelings is going to set this kid up for a lifetime of unrealistic expectations and self entitlement. No, it's just a cake and a happy memory to look back on. It was simply a gesture of comfort from her mother.

This is a five year old little girl, not a grown adult.

Re: My 4 yo excluded from a party

Here it is!

Chocolate Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
3 cups grated carrot
c agave nectar (I used honey yesterday!)
2 eggs
2 egg whites
c applesauce
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c whole wheat pastry flour (I used plain sprouted red wheat)
c cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
tsp salt
1 c grain sweetened chocolate chips
Frosting:
12 ounces Neufchatel cheese
3 c unrefined powdered sugar
1 TBS vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350*f. Line two 9 inch round cake pans with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together carrots, agave, eggs, whites, applesauce and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into prepared cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let cool in pans.
While cakes are cooling prepare frosting by blending ingredients with a mixer until smooth. When cakes are cool, spread about one third of the frosting over cake #1. Place cake #2 on top of cake #1. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake.

Sure, I guess, though not after just being bummed out but when major things have happened.
But I don't throw a party for myself, DH, or the kids when things don't go our way. Not getting your own way, that's just something you gotta get used to. It's a daily occurrence in life... can't throw a party every night.



That's sweet!
Just because it isn't right for you and your family doesn't make it wrong for another's. I would do the same as the OP for my kids. I wouldn't buy my kids gifts because they didn't go to someone else's party but I would definitely bake a cake, hang up a decoration and watch a movie together. That doesn't seem like an extreme measure to take anyway.
