I hear my carrot cake is the best carrot cake ever, at least that’s what I’ve been told.
One of my former co-workers used to tell me I could make a living just off of my carrot cake.
I am toying with the idea of taking orders for the holiday season…but not sure. The biggest question is would anyone really want to buy a carrot cake and the next biggest question is how much to charge. I’d have to price everything out (not like it’s that big of a deal), but it is a bit of research.
The carrot cake is special because it’s made with love. It’s dense cake, weighing in around 8 lbs of cake. It has over three cups of hand shredded carrots and a home made cream cheese frosting. The frosting is used as a filling and on the top, no frosting on the sides because the cake is too intense for a full frosting.
It truly isn’t a cake you can get in the store and I have yet to find even a baker in the area that has one similar.
If my house wasn’t full of candy, cookies and other sweet things I would make one as a sample.
As for other baked goods I’ve decided I want to try making a traditional english pudding. It uses suet that I would need to render. It’s more of a food experimentation since I’ve never cooked with suet, let alone have to render it myself. Next time I head to the butcher I’m going to try for suet.
