Do you ever see gorgeous photos of cakes so perfectly illustrated?
Several times recently I have tried to make a cake like I saw in those beautiful photos.
This one I am calling my "perfectly imperfect" cake.
It tilted to one side. The icing didn't go on so perfectly either.
It was the best tasting carrot cake I have had in a long time.
So here it is my perfect carrot cake recipe for you.

This morning I enjoyed a slice with my Earl Grey tea,
which I must say was a lovely combination.
