Wish I could come to your yard sale! I LOVE carrot cake and yours looks scrumptious!

Serve a slice with every purchase of so many dollars. You will clean up on both in no time!

I thought of that as well if they asked for it.

As it turned out, after us three lone yard-sellers finished putting our wares back into their boxes until the next time, I served the rest of that cake to some of my new neighbors.
All in all, I'd say that participating in the yard sale got us introduced to more folks. Good ice breaker, and the cake was a hit. One gal said that if I wanted to experiment on anymore recipes, please count her in as a taste-tester Aaw, that was so sweet!

This cake sounds SO delicious kgirl - copied and saved. The addition of pineapple sounds over the top good.

Glad to hear that even though the yard sale wasn't what you expected, you did make some potential new friends!
