As I mentioned earlier, we took a trip to the Ozarks this weekend past to celebrate my grandmother Janie's 70th birthday. We had a good ol' (short) time visiting and got back to Louisville at 3 AM today. In honor of my grandmother I wanted to bake something, so I did. . . a very large carrot cake. I'm talking a 3 layer carrot cake people. It was almost a disaster considering I was short one egg and have never baked a layered anything.
The top layer only slightly, kinda, slipped off twice.
I don't know what possessed me to make such a ginormous cake. . . but hey, you only turn 70 once!
|There was so much batter that I needed the help of my muscly husband to stir it.|
|After the first layer was sloppily frosted, still two more layers to go.|
Livin' it up Grandma!
the birthday present that will hopefully bring her photos into the digital age.
