👩🏼‍🍳 🥕Carrot Cake

Morning ! Today is King’s Day in Amsterdam, where we celebrate our King’s Birthday. Each year the whole city turns into a massive street party, everyone is wearing orange – in honor of the Dutch Royal Family who bears the name « House of Oranje » – and celebrate on boats, in the street or even on their balconies. This year will be different… I baked a carrot cake to stick to the tradition of the color orange and celebrate this very special day from home!
