Happy Bday Cake
updated: Nov 29, 2012, 2:02 PM

Here's what I did with some of my "Late Bounty" zucchini. This pic is for the poster who said we should have more photos of things other than sunrises/sunsets. Today's my Birthday! Chocolate Zucchini Cake w/ Caramel Frosting. And I used pomegranate juice to color the flowers (juice from homegrown poms). HAPPY BIRTHDAY to any other Nov 29th and all other Sagittarians!

Oooh Cake! It is beeyutiful! (Food fanatic here; eater & reader, not cooker or baker.)
I'm going to share the idea with an on-line acquaintance who is a baker. Never heard of zuch cake with caramel frosting, but now I want some. And it made me think of Clotilde Dusoulier's high profile food blog "Chocolate and Zucchini" (she's published books too.)

I discovered this today. You might want to check out the Red Pepper Velvet Cake and the Molten Beet Lava Chocolate Cake. Some stunning dishes on the menu: dirtcandynyc.com

Happy Birthday!

EVERYONE: Thank you for the birthday wishes. Had a great day. Best part being RAIN for my birthday. Love it.

This is the best zucchini cake recipe I have ever known. Super easy to make. Found it on "Just a Pinch" recipe site. Look up "Chocolate Zucchini Cake with Caramel Frosting," and there it is.

My only tips are: watch out for the frosting. It is so wonderful, it can turn fudge-like if you make it ahead of time. May have to add a bit more milk to thin it all out, so you can spread it easily.

And: I use organic sunflower oil for the oil part. This recipe calls for a lot of oil, but, WOW, what a great cake it makes.

Thank again, Edhatters, for sharing this beautiful and rainy day with me.

Belated Happy Birthday to you, from another Sagittarian! Your cake looks divine! I love zucchini cake, but have never tried a chocolate one. Will check out that recipe, for sure! Thanks!
