As a kid when we get new toys all we want to do is play play play. Yesterday I got some new toys and so I play. I used my new 6 inch cake pan and pastry bag to make a carrot cake. The recipe I used was from the joy of baking. What can I say, I am such a sucker for cream cheese frosting. The cake turned out well. I took my time, and did things right. I was patient while frosting and it paid off. The actual taste of the cake wasn't bad. It was a little on the dry side, but had a nice flavor. So much more baking yet to come this month, get excited.
