No need to laugh - I'm certainly laughing at myself!!! And - believe it or not - most of the day now under my feet - this is the SECOND attempt at this carrot cake. I declare - there must be at least 6 cups of powdered sugar in that icing. Sew...WHY won't it stay stacked???????
I'll have you know the first attempt - it seemed a bit heavy once I started icing it - and I realized I must have forgotten...the Baking Soda. So - that's at least one lesson - don't forget the baking soda!
Now - let it be known - I had to actually take classes in baking to get that Home Economics BS degree! I know.. it's my hubby's fault - we've been on a diet since Jan. 4 of 2012~! Hardly any baking around here - I've lost my touch.
My secret? The first attempt is all in pieces freezing in the freezer for when I need a SWEET FIX!
Days like this I sure wish my Mommy were still here... I can hear her laughing from Heaven. It's even her nice cake plate and cover I'm using. Oh - and this is for a dinner party tonight! I'll DEFINITELY WEAR SOMETHING I:VE MADE, I can tell you that!
Comments on why my cake won't stay stacked are MOST WELCOME!
