A Cake By Any Other Name...

It was my mother's 60th birthday last weekend. Having become the resident birthday cake maker, my mom requested carrot cake for the festivities this weekend. Now, I can actually bake a good cake. I cannot, however, decorate it to save my life. Queue, cream cheese icing that tastes great but is not quite stiff enough to stick to the sides of the cake. Add a parent's house whose air conditioning was on the fritz and you have a cake that litterally melts down the sides. Lovely.

It still tasted awesome though.
