Sweet potatoes cake

What happened until now? Well, a lot of things that kept me away from my little English food blog, and I could stay here and list all of the boring things (or excuses if you want) but I won't do that. Instead, I will share with you one main news, and it's here next to me while I am writing. She is called Grace. Yes, I am a mum of a beautiful little 2 month old girl (if you follow me on Ig you can meet her @raspberriesandtulips) and this make a big difference from last year Martina. The only thing that did no change at all is my passion of cooking and baking and experiment in the kitchen and now I've got a little company with me and cant' wait to bake with her. I am coming back then people and today with this super yummy sweet potatoes cake. Few times ago I saved a carrot cake recipe from Enrica and when I was going to bake it then I didn't have carrots, so I tried to use sweet potatoes instead, adapted few things and it worked perfectly! So happy with this cake.
