This was a special order for Sam, a good friend of ours – he was mischievous about it and ordered it, gave me numbers of servings and the date, then once I started making it he then revealed it was for his own farewell, and I was one of the guests!
I must say I don’t usually eat my own creations (I don’t get to the decorating stage, the cake is out of the oven and then it’s in my mouth!) so it was interesting seeing the inside of the cake!
I went with 4 layers this time, and we shared it at Joe’s Garage cafe in town with friends, yup, definitely an adult cake!
Although this was a while ago now, but still wishing you all the best, Sam, wherever you are, be happy and be true to yourself!
This year for Brooke’s 5th birthday cake, they decided to try something new – carrot cake. I must say this is the first time I’ve gotten an order for a carrot cake for a child – it’s usually an adult cake. They ordered a 10″ one with the traditional cream cheese buttercream to top, and just needed a message and basic decoration.
This was an order from TradeMe, all the way back in June 2014. Yes, I’ve been slack at posting, and need to do a big catch-up before 2015 hits! I will be good for Santa and try to keep it up to date before Xmas comes, just you watch me!
I thought I’d title this post “Carrot Cake #2″ as this is the second carrot cake order I’ve done – but then I looked back to my previous posts and I don’t see where #1 went? Ah well, will keep this as #2, as there will be a #3 coming soon!
The lady requested a standard carrot cake for her partner’s birthday, 9” round, and I could pretty much decorate it how I liked, so I thought I’d play around with the little carrots on the side – which turned out rather cute I thought! The frosting is of course the cream cheese frosting, which who can really live without, huh?
