What’s up, Doc?

I’m sure Bugs would feel like one “special bunny” if this were given to him …

Still can’t figure out what it is? What if we add some (appropriately) colored sprinkles to clue you in some more?

What do you mean it still doesn’t ring a bell? Maybe a differently-designed frosting would finally clinch the deal for you 😉

Hurray – you finally got it! It’s carrot cake with cream cheese frosting – one of my favorite desserts that I finally was able to bake fairly recently (and with a proper oven this time) for a good friend’s birthday – yipee! 😎

Although I actually did only one recipe, I was able to split it into two “respectably-sized” cakes – one for our friend (the fully frosted one with the carrot design on top) and one for us (the one found on the first two pics in this post).  Now, ain’t that just doubly sweet? 😛

To find out “what’s up” with this cake, click here for the recipe. 

PS Some substitutions/slight modifications I did:

On cake batter – used pureed fresh gala apple instead of store-bought applesauce, used canola oil instead of vegetable oil

On frosting – used 1 cup icing sugar instead of confectioner’s and omitted pecans
