Christmas Carrot Cake (?)

I asked my daughter what she wanted for Christmas morning breakfast, expecting her to answer waffles, and she said, rather matter of factly, 'Carrot Cake.' So, carrot cake it was. I used this Cooking Light recipe that I've made several times before (it was actually my girl's first birthday cake). I added half whole white wheat flour since it would be our breakfast and all, but followed everything else.
The cake is better chilled, so I made it the night before while doing my Mrs Clause duties of helping Santa set up a train track.

I can't eat that much sweet for breakfast and still have good energy for the rest of the day, so I had a bowl of miso soup after a few bites of cake.

What a great idea! Maybe a new tradition? Still think the soup is kind of wierd, but give me a month and I will probably copy it.
