The Partiologist: Carrot Cake!

Carrot Cake!

Another day in the classroom.  The Sugar Art Classroom that is.  I needed a beautiful design for my Carrot Cake that didn't involve little squiggle carrots on top, this was not the cake for carrots.  I wanted it to be elegant and rustic to go with a fall themed dessert table.  And I think it would beautiful on a Thanksgiving table as well, don't you?
 
Carrot Cake!
 
I found my cake design at SugarEd Productions Sugar Art School.
 
Only I decided to make a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting!
 
I've used my Russian decorating tips in the past, but didn't know if they would work with cream cheese frosting.
 
I had to play with my recipe to make it the right texture and finally got it to work.

After mixing my cream cheese icing I colored it and added a bit more powdered sugar for the flowers.
 
As far as the decorating goes, it's the design of Sharon from SugarEd Productions
 
After watching the video, I carefully decorated the cake.

And to my surprise, I didn't have to scrape off any frosting and start over!

Okay, I had to replace several flowers until I got the texture.


It's the Flavor of Fall!
