Notes

When thinking about vegetables in season, we started to talk about beets because magic scissors brought the letter B. Gus helped talk the other Rainbows into trying Beets in a cake. They all seemed to love it! The beets give the cake a nice moist texture.

The original recipe called for coconut to be spread on the bottom of the pan before the batter is put in. This would make a delicious addition to the cake.

A dash of local for every season
