This is the birthday cake recipe I've specifically requested from my mother every year.
Carrots add sweetness, and there's a touch of cinnamon in the background.
Chopped walnuts are a delicious addition to the buttery, light icing.
I altered a traditional honey cake recipe for this dish.
I wanted to highlight our local honey and summer berries.
With the blueberries in the top corner
and the raspberries in stripes, this makes a great Fourth of July cake.
