Baked a Carrot Cake for Jay

It has been a long time, since I've made any desserts for my husband. Jay has been struggling to keep his weight down, so he asked me please, not to bake anymore sweets. Then, he goes to work and all they have sitting around at break time, are donuts, rolls, cakes, and homemade desserts! These sweet-tooth downfalls, follow him all over the place Now Jay has informed me, preparing desserts at home is no longer a big 'No No.' Yesterday, I baked a carrot cake (one of his favorites) and added handfuls of chopped walnut, to make it even more delicious:) His eyes twinkled like the 'Eastern Star!'

@just4him What's really strange, I don't see Jay as overweight. He's the only one who sees this:(

It's really good and full of spices, quite similar to spice cake.

I love carrot cake, and the walnuts would make it even better. So glad Jay now doesn't mind you baking some sweets for him every now and then.

When he eats sweets, his weight stays the same. If Jay quits eating sweets, he feels deprived:(
