Momma's Birthday


It's my Momma's birthday......er, well it was this weekend. Alright so I'm a little late with her birthday post, but I'm gonna do one anyway!

One of her favorite cakes is a carrot cake. She's diabetic so I took the recipe that I had and "Splenda-rized" it. One of the main things to overcome when I bake with Splenda is to make sure that what I'm baking doesn't dry out. So I toss in an extra egg or a touch more oil, if I need to. No worries with this cake, though. I think it came out pretty well. Take a look for yourself. That's the cake in the picture on the left. I sprinkled walnuts on the top and coated the sides with more walnut pieces on top of the cream cheese icing. Yum!

Mom really enjoyed it (heck, we ALL did). I have a big slice in the freezer for the Hubby when he gets home sometime this weekend. Mom wanted to be sure he got some, too.

So Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope you enjoyed everything and I look forward to celebrating many more with you.


PS~ More cause for celebration...Mom's last day of radiation is right around the corner! Yay, Momma!

That cake is gorgeous! And it's not even lopsided like mine would have been!

Your mom sent me the nicest letter for my birthday.

Give her a hug for me!
