GRATING BEETS FOR CAKE

Chocolate beet cake with hot pink beet frosting: one way to get kids to try beets! This was the recipe for success suggested by our veggie of the month taste test queen, parent (and so much more for our school), Stacie Illingworth. The result was amazing. I think we have a whole school of converts to the joy of beets!
