Mummy….happy birthday 2 u! hehe, see I wake up first thing sing u birthday song :)
Heehee… thanks Piggies for the birthday wishes :) and thanks Daddy for the very nice dinner:))

The night before , I baked for myself a carrot cake from Baking : From My Home To Yours ” by Dorie Greenspan . Simple to make and very delicious . I reduced the sugar by halve and used Muscovado sugar instead of castor sugar and I used melted butter ( 125 gm butter – melted) instead of canola oil. Haha, guess I like to twist the recipe to my taste. I don’t like my cake to be too sweet and the muscovado sugar will give the cake a coarser and darker texture as you can see from the photos. I normally reduced the sugar by half, depends on the type of cake. Carrot cake has got raisins and the cheese frosting is slightly sweet ( I reduced the icing sugar by half too ) . In one and half hours, I got the cake baked and frosted.
It came out nice..evenly browned and aromatic..hmmm
After it cooled down, cut into half and sandwiched them
with half of the cheese frosting's finished..put it in the cake box and into
the fridge it goes till ready to serve ;)

This is a very delicious carrot cake
