Good morning campers, and to all you yummy mummies out there, Happy Mothers Day! If any of you are like me then this cake will be making the perfect addition to an already lovely Mothering Sunday gift. I mean, every mam deserves a cake! This weeks pick was the choice of Julie from a Little Bit of Everything, Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting.
I was quite excited to make this one as for as long as I can remember I've turned the SMS layer cakes into cupcakes. So this week I decided to stick to the recipe, for once. Sadly, my excitement was short lived as I found this cake rather disappointing. As it baked the cake developed quite a crispy top, not dissimilar to the texture of a meringue. Oddly enough, while the top was quite dry, the inside was awfully moist, a little too moist, despite passing the toothpick test. Personally, I blame my oven! This was the last thing I baked before getting my oven door replaced as for the last year the inner glass has been loose and the seal has been broken (thanks mister landlord). Fingers crossed that from now on my cakes will be disaster free ;)
Don't forget to have a mosey over to the SMS bakers to see everyone else's mothers day treats!
