  • Glad they are freezer friendly as making snacks for this lot need to prepare some in bulk.

  • Has anyone actually tried these with their kids? Im thinking my kids will smell the health in this and avoind them. I baken regular carrot cake last week and all they ate was the icing.

  • These look really nice and healthy. We dont have raw sugar at home. Does anyone know if I can use an alternative. Has anyone tried brown or caster sugar or just regular white sugar?
