Well I made my cake

... and broke it!

Must've manhandled it a little too vigorously when wrapping it in foil while still warm and it broke clean in two! Ah it'll be ok - nothing a little bit of cream cheese icing can't hide.

It was a beautiful loaf-shaped carrot cake from a recipe my mum had written in the back of her old "Cookery Year" cookbook which is one of my treasures. Felt nice reading her handwriting and weighing and mixing up the ingredients. The recipe was given to her by an aunt in Canada - we first tasted carrot cake when we stayed with family over there when I was 10. That's when we discovered McDonalds too hehe
