Looks delicious! There is a carrot cake recipe in TCB. It’s called Golden Wheat Carrot Ring. It’s not your typical carrot cake recipe but it is really, really good. Also it’s baked in a savarin ring but I know Hector has baked it in different shaped pans and it has worked well. Give it a try sometime.
Yummy…. Ski.. What is on the sides? Nuts? Let me know how you like the recipe. I have several recipes for carrot cake. It’s a favorite of my DH… I will have to checkout the one on CB. My cakes often get a little lopsided too. Maybe the filling not even… not sure. I have even resorted to using a level… It looks delicous and is very pretty.
yea they are pecans and cream cheese frosting.
I saw tcb carrot wheat ring thingy, but i couldn’t make that since i don’t have a pan like that, and i didn’t have wheat flour. I got the recipe off allrecipes.com - which is where i get MOST of my cooking recipes. I usually choose one that has 4.5-5 stars and 1000 reviews, that way you can tweak it like others have to make a perfect dish.
I haven’t tasted it yet, ill report back when i do.
when you say your cake is lopsided, you mean right to left, right? i have the same problem! luckily that problem can usually be remedied by turning the cake around to a more pleasing side! however, if you want to correct this problem the easiest way is to center the cake on a turntable after you have torted and filled it and have someone spin the cake. Stand back a few feet from the cake and look for that errant layer (usually the top). at that point you can slide it over and also trim the sides, which many bakers do. be judicious, like cutting your bangs, cut too much and there’s no going back.
remember, no cake is ever perfect and very few people other than the baker ever notice!
use a bread knife, the serrated kind? and cut with a sawing motion. you may also want to try trimming before adding the filling. however, if you do, you’ve got to mark the cake in some way so that you can put the layers back together like a puzzle. some bakers cut a notch, martha uses toothpicks.
That’s a beautiful cake, Ski! I love the pecans on the side. I also like using pecans on my cakes when I can. And I think your piping is done really well, too. Thanks for sharing your pictures. I can’t wait to see your next one.
