'Shredded' Carrot Cake



This carrot cake is not your typical carrot cake, it's shredded. And by shredded, I mean fit, and by fit, I mean healthy! This new Shredded Carrot Cake has only 328 calories per serving, frosting included! It's made with healthy, nutritional ingredients that still taste amazing! Have your cake and eat it too! Make it with me!




This Carrot Cake is a healthy spin on a traditional recipe! It has all the same great flavor and ingredients, just made a little lighter and a lower calorie! You still get those delicious spices and seasonings, bites of carrot, and cream cheese frosting! All the feelings, half the guilt!






The trick to this recipe is making sure that the cake bakes all the way through. There are a lot of wet ingredients in this recipe that need to bake up. Make sure that the cake doesn't jiggle or appear too soft when you take it out of the oven. Test the center with a toothpick and be sure it comes out clean!

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
