C is for Carrot Cake, S is for Sad
I tried making Goodweed's TnT Carrot Cake recipe for DH's birthday tomorrow and learned an important lesson. When making a multiple or fraction of a recipe, it's worth the extra time to do all the math beforehand and rewrite the recipe for the batch you're making. It's late and work dragged on tonight, so I'm a rather tired. Therefore, it's not terribly surprising that I forgot to cut the amounts water and molasses in half after halving the rest of the recipe. The thin cake I made out of extra batter has a great flavor and a lovely, light, moist texture. The 3 mini round cakes I had planned to layer however, fell miserably. I suppose I'll just warm and serve them in the dishes I baked them in with warm cream cheese frosting and perhaps a scoop of vanilla icecream. Oh, the other lesson: go to bed! Night all!
Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.
