Carrot Cake With Butter Icing Is Good Too!
Carrot cake and cream cheese frosting are a perfect combo but I would go over budget if I go for the latter. I didn't want to serve a plain cake for the resort's nightly turn down service. Without the icing, the cake would look plain and boring and a boring cake would end up in the bin. An idea to frost the cake with vanilla butter icing occurred to me. Not only would it look better but also enhance the taste of the cake and keep my expenses to a minimum. I iced the cake with the butter cream and it did not disappoint. It was delish! Thanks to my taste testers for the thumbs up :)
The recipe for carrot cake is taken from joyofbaking.com. I added assorted nuts (walnuts, peanuts and cashew nuts) to the batter. They added a bit more chunkiness to the cake. So good!
