Creamy Carrot Cake

Oh dear, I have a feeling I will never get a full night’s sleep. Even when I am supposed to work a half-day, I get called in early. On my days off, I bake and take photos from 7 am on. Don’t get me wrong; I love my baking days; they let me get through the rest of my days. It just takes a lot out of me. I work, bake, and try to hang out with family or my boyfriend. So when people ask me what I do for fun, I say bake and take photos. ‘What else?’ they say. I say, ‘Umm, what?’

Oh well, late-night ramblings, sorry.

This carrot cake. My first time was making a carrot cake and, of course, a Martha recipe. This is by far the moistest carrot cake I have ever had. I didn’t change her recipe at all; it was perfect. So carroty, that hint of spice, the crunch of the pecans. It was so good. And cream cheese frosting. Such a classic recipe, old-fashioned, traditional. But what could be better? It is not fancy or avant-garde, but who cares? Classics are always appropriate.

So when trying to make a pretty cake, you have to level off the top. And you know the best part of that? You don’t have to wait till you finish decorating the whole cake before trying it. You get a sneak peek! What a great breakfast. Yes, my diet is probably horrible. I make so many cakes and desserts, have to drink a whole pot of coffee just to wake me up, and eat a probably unhealthy amount of cheese. But I eat those little gummy multi-vitamins and never get sick, so I’ll enjoy it while I’m young.
