How's the first day of the work week going? Yesterday, I had a hard time continuing the big painting. I ended up working on another unfinished piece instead. By 3PM, I felt like doing something else so I thought, "Why don't I bake?" I have never baked my entire life. However, I have given myself a challenge to be able to master carrot cake so that I could make one for my Mother- in-law's birthday this summer. So here it is. My version is pretty rough and it's great that it's moist but a bit rich. I love the way the carrot and walnuts blended together with cream cheese icing.
It was exciting to do. I just followed Joy of Baking Recipe. Do give it a try and it'll take your mind off whatever it is you feel like you're stuck in. It made me feel better despite all the mess I've done in the kitchen. :)
