Yaya called me about a week ago and asked me to make a cake for Ryan Depew’s birthday…of course, I was happy to do it! She told me that his favorite was Carrot Cake, so that’s what I made. I love this recipe because it is so darn easy!
i love my aprons
here’s what you’ll need for the cake.
yep! baby food!
here’s what ya need for the cream cheese icing
For the Cake:
2 cups self rising flour (so easy!)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups sugar
2 (4 ounce) jars baby carrot food
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
Put all of it in Lucille (the mixer)
and mix it all up! Put it in 4 greased 9″ round cake pans (i lined the bottoms with waxed paper). Bake at 325 for about 20 minutes! Watch them because mine got done much faster!
For the icing:
1 (8 ounce) block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 a stick of butter, softened
a pound of powdered sugar
Use lucille again and mix it all up (with the whisk beater)!
I couldn’t resist grating some fresh carrots on top.
Happy Birthday Ryan Depew!
