Carrot Cake....The Best EVER!
My baking confidence grows.....this time it was Carrot Cake. I've been kicking it around in my head that I wanted to bring it for Easter dinner...but I wanted to to try it first to make sure I could really do it. Well, ta da!!!! It turned out AMAZING!!!!! JUST like my real life friend Marzipan's. I truly can't thank her enough for all of her support and encouragement....it makes me so happy to make such wonderful things for my family and friends.
Some things I learned were:
1. There is a whole pound of carrots in carrot cake.
2. You have to steam the raisins first, before mixing them in.
3. The cream cheese frosting is yummy....but next time I would make extra...there was JUST enough, and I would have liked a bit more.
