This is my Mom’s Classic Carrot Cake and for a while, it was a go-to for special occasions, especially since it was always a two-layer affair. I think I’ll always associate carrot cake with Easter…in my mind, I guess, Easter goes hand in hand with rabbits and rabbits eat, well, carrots – and just about anything else in the garden!
Happy Halloween, ya’ll!! I made you a cake! Tis the season, isn’t it for everything and anything Pumpkin Spice. Ummmm, Guilty! Sometimes Pumpkin Spice can get a little old, but not with this cake. This Easy Pumpkin Spice Sheet Cake has a special blend of warm fall spices with just a bit of a kick from a touch of black pepper. It’s delish!
I kept hoping September would be hot and I’d get to do a little more swimming in the lake, especially since I got some wild swim shoes or water shoes or whatever they’re called! I waited and waited for them and now it’s cool. There’s no denying fall is in the air, and right on time this year and I’m already thinking about pears and apples. In the meantime, though, I’m pulling out one last summer hurrah. I’m breaking out with this Strawberry Dream Cake.
It might be time to take a little break from all things “fall” and food made with pumpkin (and the resulting Pumpkin Spice) and put aside all those thoughts about Thanksgiving (coming up so fast!) and have a little sumpin sumpin that’s chocolate, maybe a little sumpin like these Best Chocolate Cupcakes.
