I got such a great reaction to the Lamb Cake post last week that I wanted to give you an update on how Alice's cake turned out.
So, without further ado, here it is...
Hmmm. I sure hope it tasted good.
Another reader (and Twitter pal) V of *Uncorked said that her family does a lamb cake every year too. Her and her sister fight over who gets to eat the head because she claims that's the best part! However, this year her mom didn't want to upset her nephew, so they're weren't allowed to slice off the head and eat it. (Um, yeah! Cuz that's sick!) So, she ate the lamb ass instead because it has the most frosting and coconut. Hahahaha! Here's her mom's lamb cake.
Sorry girls, I'm not sure I'm ever going to understand the appeal of the Easter lamb cake. However, I am considering making one for Halloween this year since they're so damn creepy.
So instead of a lamb cake, I made a carrot cake. Carrots aren't scary. Even when they're angry they're not scary.
After my cake decorating class a few weeks ago, I was determined to make the most beautiful carrot cake you'd ever seen. And that was the plan...I was determined. The problem was that the plan was rudely interupted by my husband, who forced me to go have a good time at a Final Four party Saturday night, leaving me to decorate the cake at 2:00 a.m. when we got home. Please let this be a warning to you all that you should never "Drink & Decorate."
But damn it, it tasted GOOD!
My friend Michelle also took the cake decorating class with me and made a carrot cake for Easter (I actually stole the idea and recipe from her). Her cake looked amazing! See those even straight sides! And those beautiful peaks on top! She even put little bundles of carrots on the sides! I'm so impressed. Although I have a feeling she might have been sober when she decorated...lesson learned.
