I hope you are enjoying this week. Tomorrow is my mister’s birthday and I am cooking a carrot cake as we speak. I use to bake a lot but don’t anymore. It’s a good thing because I forget what I am doing and have to reread the recipe over and over! This cake will be at least interesting. It called for vegetable oil, I don’t use vegetable oil, I have olive oil but that doesn’t taste good in a baked cake so I substituted butter. I think I added too much cinnamon. Then I added cloves and the top came off, spilling too much in the mixture. The nutmeg had holes too big and too much came out ~ so I think we all get the big picture now! But he likes cloves and nutmeg so we will see. ; ) I am starting to smell the cake and it does at least smell good. He’s a good sport and is subjected to all sorts of torture by me! I had to up the “Cool Dude” look for him in this pic taken last winter. Gotta go, it’s time to take the cake out of the oven, cross your fingers for me! I hope you have a great rest of the week!
