It was my hubby’s birthday this past weekend and he asked for carrot cake..well, let me rephrase. I got a massive bag of carrots a few weekends before and realized we really have to do something with the carrots soon, so I did one of these: ..so, honey? We haven’t had carrot cake in a while, eh? Waiting..waiting…Then he says: How about carrot cake for my birthday? Great, so since it was HIS idea, it was a GREAT idea. I’m sure if I instead said: Honey, how about some carrot cake for your birthday, answer would not have been so enthusiastic.
I also went on a carrot binge and made carrot cupcakes and carrot soup. Thank God it’s all gone, cause by the end my hand was hurting from all the peeling and grating.
The carrot cake here was pretty tasty, with its plush and tender crumb made moist by an abundance of shredded carrots and crushed pineapple. Generously studded with large chunks of walnuts and pecan and enrobed in a velvety cream cheese frosting, each slice is perhaps a bit larger than one person would be advised to consume in a sitting.
Thanks to my lovely neighbours who helped us consume the rather large cake over the weekend.
Happy birthday Jamie!
