Today is my Hubby’s birthday. He is……………, well, he is older than average. But then I am older than average, so it just works. I am, however, 14 weeks older and he does not let me forget that I married a YOUNGER man. Hee Hee. Anyway, I made his favorite cake – CARROT CAKE!. The recipe is actually Emeril’s, but the picture at Carmen Cooks is what clinched it. It happened to be THE day I was looking at all the TWD’s Dorie’s Dimply Plum cake and there was this great picture of carrot cake. I had been searching for a new recipe as mine had run away with the missing socks. The recipe is for three layers and enough frosting to cover the layers.This is how I wanted to leave the cake, but Hubby said it needed more frosting. And it was his birthday. So I made another batch of frosting.
Do you know how hard it was to look at this cake on the counter all afternoon? I couldn’t cut it until after Hubby’s Birthday Dinner (Steak, Potatoes, and salad). But let me tell y’all something — IT WAS WORTH IT!!!!!
So, Happy Birthday, Hubby. This cake is for you.
