Had to break the posting pause somehow so here goes: lifestyle piece- it’s late January, 10 degrees on a good morning, and every day dress has eaten cake. Store bought cake over the long weekend and scratch cake starting on Tuesday.
Cake eating? Oh, well. Posting pause? Last time I checked Alexis Stewart, vegetarian cook extraordinaire, superlative baker, same age 47, mom of two, a favorite food blogger, hadn’t posted since December 6. Know she bakes plenty of cake, wonder if she eat’s it? Maybe she too is on posting pause? It is January. Miss you, Alexis.
To be exact about the cakes, ‘Cake Boss‘ after skiing and scratch Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting city-side. Somehow missed that there was a ‘Cake Boss.’ Weekend house guests with four-year old clued us into ‘Cake Boss.’ Cooked like crazy all weekend long, even a double batch of Rum Raisin Rice Pudding. A house of eleven and two more fun dinner guests can put away some serious food and drink. So much went down. Being January couldn’t get up for photo taking, we were having too much fun.
Back home the cake party continued. Like you, all the other stuff is going on too- life, work, family, friends. Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting can be a sweet part of the day. One photo, of one piece, to capture the mood.
For the record, spread sheets, phone calls, and fashion notes continue, gym visits ongoing, blog posting will hopefully soon resume play, and lean times, maybe without cake, will come again.
Stay warm. Would love to a have you all over to eat cake.

Love it Rebecca! We Moms have to recharge our batteries in January after making sure all our family members have had wonderful holidays in December!!! Enjoy! BTW: have you tried the caramel carrot cake @ Remington Tavern? Amazing!!! (Yours looks delicious too!) Glad to see your new post!
Thank you, Kathi, your nice comments help keep me going. Did you see how that slice of cake sunk down in the middle? A little undercooked but a great way to capture extra frosting in that dip. You could teach us novice bakers a few things I am sure. Will put the caramel carrot cake on the must do list. 🙂 Thanks again and have a great day.
this looks so good mommy, i want some carrot cake! miss you xoxo
