It goes to show how much I love to bake...I am 3 days into a 28 day juice cleanse and here it is, my hubby's birthday. I always make him a carrot cake (his favorite). But, the baked group is making this cake. How could I not make it? I made it through the whole thing...not even a lick from my finger. I try to look at it as a piece of art or a craft and try to disassociate the fact that it is edible. Well, it seemed to work....this time, anyway. I have to admit it was hard not to lick the fingers...if I wear gloves it helps alot!
Such a sad thing to be so addicted to sugar.
The cake is a sour cream cake and it smelled heavenly when it
was baking...it looked like it was moist...
My hubby said it was.
The frosting is a chocolate cream cheese frosting...
what is not to like about that!
I halved the recipe, as I usually do. It made a cute little six inch cake.
My husband like the cake. He said the frosting was very rich.
I think he missed his carrot cake.
I did a frosting technique that I have been wanting to try for some time now....
I need more practice...LOL!
It certainly looked delicious. I am putting a piece in the freezer so I can
give it a try at a later date!
Happy Birthday Don!
