Carrot Cake With Spiced Honey Frosting


How to Make the Best Carrot Cake

Now that Halloween is over, we have officially entered into the Holiday Season, or what I like to call Dinner Party Season. I know Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away, but it’s never too early to start planning. This week, I teamed up with my friend Stephanie from Just West Designs to bring you a Winter Inspired Table Setting. Stephanie is a very talented photographer and designer – so I just provided the cake and let her do the rest (with a little help from Suite Paperie on the Place Cards and Flourish of Sacramento on the Flower Arrangements). If you ask me, I think she did a pretty amazing job – clean, simple, and absolutely beautiful!

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
