Easter was a week ago. We were invited to Roy’s family’s house for the Easter Brunch. Roy’s Aunt & Uncle did all the cooking, so all we needed to bring were our baby bunny, and the Carrot Cake. Lately, I’ve been testing different kinds of baking goodies with vegetables, with no sugar or less sugar, so Remi can eat when she is ready. Roy has been complaining about the lack of sweetness he expect from cake. But this one is pretty nice for grown ups.

先週はイースター・サンデーでした。今年はロイのおじさんとおばさんの家に招待され、イースター・バニーに扮したレミとキャロットケーキを抱えて遊びに行きました。今後のレミのために、最近色々な野菜を入れたお菓子を試験中です。砂糖を入れないものや、少量の物ばかりなのでロイにはぶーぶー言われていますが、これはちゃんとお砂糖入りです。私のイメージしたキャロットケーキが白いフロスティング付きなのと、ミッフィーにしたかったのとで、クリームチーズのフロスティングにしてみました。
