A few weeks ago a friend of mine had a birthday. He happens to love carrot cake, but since I had already made one, I figured I had to get fancy. Alas, I had never tackled a bundt before, and after this one, I might only make bundts!
I used a Pioneer Women recipe because I trust her more than most.
I used a simple frosting of cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla, instead of the traditional cream cheese frosting. The lighter frosting helped the cake really stand out on its own.
The bundt slid out of the mold so easily, and looked so beautiful, with such a browned perfection that I think all cakes should be bundt – the pan does all the work for you! If making a bundt by yourself, remember to butter and flour your pan so the cake really does slide out in one piece!
What is your favorite kind of cake to serve? Something simple, or something fancy to impress the masses?
