Carrot Cake

So today I made Jujey's awesome carrot cake. It was easier than I thought, but I had her on msn asking questions all along.

I was worried about the icing part because I've never piped anything before but I just kinda winged it. I had a little extra green so Dawood suggested I write something. I thought Yum was appropriate. Next time, I think I will follow the recommendation and double the icing recipe.It wasn't enough to cover the sides and fill with plenty. I used toasted, chopped walnuts around the sides.

It was hard trying to do it with the kids hovering over me trying to get a lick of icing every 5 minutes. E loved it too.

I will definitely be making this again!

    LOL @ your "yum". It DOES look quite yum! It's almost midnight but now I'm craving carrot cake. ;)

  11. what does of cream cheese brand did u use?

  12. what about icing sugar?
    also do u have a pizza recipe u use with affordable egyptian cheese/pizza sauce that actually turns out good?

  13. Burgundy, I used Kiri, it works just as well as Philadepehia for a lot less $. Icing sugar is pretty much everywhere, the brand I get is called Doha.

    I don't have a pizza recipe but I used to get the ready half baked crust and use Heinz pizza sauce and Domty mozzarella.
