I really don’t know if this will count towards my Heavenly Cake bake-a-long. Mainly because I adapted so much of this recipe at the end, I feel like I actually ended up doing something totally different than the original.
Talk about inspiration.
The background of this cake is simple. One of my best friends birthday was coming up. Her boyfriend, who is an avid cook like me, sent me an email and asked me if I be willing to bake her the birthday cake. At the same time this was happening I was already thinking of offering my baking services to the cause. I love when the universe works all of these tweaks and everyone ends up getting what they what.
After a bit of investigating efforts of the boyfriend, we narrow it down to her favorite cake being carrot cake.
Which was perfect for me, since I had not baked the carrot cake when it was in rotation, so again win-win.
