I had a cake order last weekend for a simple carrot cake for a dinner party. I like to think the point of beautiful dessert is to take your mind from, "I'm so full," to "I could eat a bit more." Nothing like a little fancy piping to help with the transition.
Smooth cream cheese icing and three layers of decadent carrot cake.
This would make a really cute top of a wedding cake or a cake for a bridal shower. I would love this cake for a dinner party.
Although, when dessert is so pretty, sometimes you skip dinner and dive right in.
