Summer Solstice Cake

This past week we celebrated the summer solstice, and here is the cake I made.
Traditionally, one would leave honeycakes as an offering in pagan culture, but this was carrot cake. I figured with all the fruit, veg, nuts, etc inside it was pretty nature-oriented and solstice appropriate.
I actually cooked up a storm, but forgot to take pictures of everything....sorry
