Carrot Birthday Cake

29 Apr

Monday was my sister’s birthday so I baked her a cake. I had a really hard time deciding what to make because I was stressed out. Finally I decided on a carrot cake because, well, carrot cakes are tasty. I’ll refrain from posting her age.. let’s say we like to regress. Haha.

my first 2 tiered cake

I used the recipe shared by userealbutter, I love her site. The recipe is really easy to make and came out delicious. This cake was 1.5x the cake recipe and 2x the frosting recipe. I used up almost all of the frosting trying to make it look nice. I still suck at frosting cakes apparently. I should stick to fondant..

I also made some hello kitty cake pops using bakerella‘s tutorial.

We ate at Deluxe Diner near Columbia. Food was decent for a diner and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Dad’s steak was over done and the meatloaf wasn’t amazing but the salmon and mushroom risotto, turkey club and burger were good. I totally regret ordering this burger… along with the giant beef pattie, it had 2 sausages, cheese, bacon, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, and lettuce. Fries were great. *jiggles stomach*

    So she’s a Hello Kitty fan. 🙂
    Should I count the number of candles on the cake to guess her age. 😛

    Happy Birthday to your sis!
