The Coveted Cake...UPDATED

Gettin' Started
The best recipe...ever.
Smells sooooo good...can't wait!
Neither could Abby, she decided it needed a taste.
This is the "crumb coat" a thin layer of icing, you chill it and then have a smooth, clean surface for the pretty icing.

Dena has, on occasion, mentioned her favorite cake that I make. For our girl's weekend this weekend at Virginia's beach house, I decided to make carrot cake. Here are some of the steps I took in that process seems monumental to me because it has been at least 1.5 years since I have made it. The last time was for Dena's birthday or (maybe for her for Christmas?), the one before last because this time she was on a diet.

Finished product still to come, waiting on Kane to get home from store with more supplies!

Yum! It was good...I still have some in the fridge!

It looks so incredibly delicious!!! I enlarged the photo of the recipe to make a copy. I can't wait to make it, but I need the cream cheese frosting recipe too. What do you use for the crumb coat? A thin layer of the cream cheese frosting? Will you please e-mail me the recipe at Have a great weekend. Thanks!
