TWD: Carrot Cake


Tuesdays with Dorie: Bill's Big Carrot Cake

This week, I killed 2 birds with one stone- blog group (check!), birthday order (check!).  Although I made a few alterations to Dorie's recipe, this cake is amazing.  Now, I missed the taste test, the best part- boo, but the smell and moistness was incredible!  In my version, I ditched the nuts, raisins, and coconut.  However, I added an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple, mmm delicious.  This cake was incredibly easy to set up and the cream cheese icing adds the perfect touch.


Cinnamon, pineapple, carrot???
yea that's right- delicious!  Well, in the cake at least =)



Crumb-coatin'



On its way to gorgeous =)



Perfection!


Time to decorate... my favorite part.

This is an exquisite cake. The frosting is perfect (wish I could frost properly, I usually just mess this part up).
