This carrot cake is so good that I just had to make one whole cake to share out with my friends. I made the using the same recipe as the carrot cupcakes which Piggy Jo baked some last last weekend . Seeing that it turned out well, I decided to bake one for my friends . And true enough it was moist and the right texture for me. I shared the cake with Kitty and wanted to give Piggy Cuz a piece , but unfortunately she was not in so I gave her share to Kitty...blessed Kitty, she got two pieces :p ( Piggy Cuz, if you are reading this post and found out what you have missed, dont feel frustrated, I will be baking this again next month and I shall make sure you have your share ! LOL!
While waiting for the frosting to be ready, I always cling wrap the cake to keep the cake moist. This time around, I decided to frost the cake pieces by pieces. I enjoyed the frosting part the most. Had fun trying my hands at frosting . I love the ruffles pattern and it is easy to ice them on the cake, not that hard as I first thought it to be. I decorated the frosted cake with toasted walnuts and gosh it was great as a gift to people you love. Great presentation LOL! yea I know, self praise is not a praise but to me it is encouragement :p
cling wrapped it helps keep the cake moist
love to play with the icing.....real therapy and helps me
unwind and helps take things off my mind :)
I love the moist texture of the cake and I lessen
cinnamon powder and sugar so that it is not overpowering
sweet and cinnamon strong...perfect for me
but not too sure whether Kitty prefers it sweeter
and stronger fragrant :)
do I pass the test for decorating the cake ? LOL!
I do....thanks hahaha
Have a great weekend and do try baking this version
I am sure you will love it too!
