and by plain I mean, looking.
because carrot cake is never plain in tasting!
story goes like this.
A dear grandmother & favorite aunt make the best carrot cake
girl dates a guy that as it turns out, only LOVEs carrot cake for dessert (well...that and ice cream:)
girl makes best carrot cake recipe & marries guy
forever making carrot cakes for all occasions, which turns out to rub off on all guys friends-
making more than carrot cake for him, but also his friends...
resulting in Infamous Carrot Cake
which is now often requested for birthdays all over :)
Here it is.
its the best recipe
I've made it into cupcakes
it has 4 CUPS of freshly grated carrots!
then slathering the cake with oh so yummy cream cheese frosting!!
But then I must admit.
For a birthday celebration delivery...
it felt a bit plain.
I just didn't want to send it over to our friends birthday looking like this...and 57 candles would be a bit much.
I made a little banner
Kinda cute!? HUh?
I did it with 2 skewers & string & bits of ribbon
Now yummy & un-plaind carrot cake!
