Birthday cake!

Healthy cake with edible flower decorations, simple is always classic!
 Here is the recipe

1 stick of organic grass fed butter
i cup of raw local honey
2 cups of chunky organic applesauce - I made my own from some local apples
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups unbleached pastry flour- you could also use 50% wholewheat, 50% pastry but the texture will be more dense
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
optional extras include organic raisins, you could add nuts ect

Butter and flour a 10 inch  bundt pan - you can also bake this is a round or square tin but I think the bundt pan makes it look more festive and beautiful!
Cream together butter and honey
Stin in applesauce and vanilla mixing well
Sift flour, spices, and baking soda over the applesauce mixture. Stir well
Pour batter into pan and set on middle rack of the oven. Bake for 70 to 75 minutes or until the cake tester comes out clean
Cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Turn onto a rack to cool.

Decorate with edible flowers such as nasturtiums, borage, calendula, apples and I put a festive vase of flowers in the center of the cake.
