Pimp Your Store-Bought Carrot Cake by theresahelmer Pimp Your Store-Bought Carrot Cake by theresahelmer
So...My friend came over to my house ask for my help (with a flat of carrot cakes). She planned on serving the cakes for her evening backyard BBQ (she does not bake at all). I helped her to pimp up her store-bought carrot cakes. Here is the result.

You too can do the same if you are having dinner parties/picnics...Some store-bought baked goods are quite good, they are convenient, especially when the time is not on your side.


:bulletyellow: The small yellow Oxalis flowers decorated on top of the cakes are edible. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxalis if you need more information.

That's some fine pimping ;) that's the sort of bought cake you'd be proud to take into the office when it's your turn for morning tea (I must confess to being one of the non-bake crowd when it's going to my workplace !!)

Beautiful! Such a wonderful idea to use edible flowers!

:icontheresahelmer:

thank you!

i used this flower also for the taste. This flower has a bit sourness to it, so it cuts down the sweetness in case the cakes are too sweet for some dinner guests (generally the store-bought cakes are sweeter than home baked goods)

Oh thats wonderful insight! I find they're very sweet too. Carrot cake is one of my favourites actually but I found a lot of people see it as the worst type of cake! I have no idea why XD

We won't tell my friend, I would never eat a carrot cake from store, but that's just me being difficult...my carrot cake is sooooo yummy...I intentionally added the flowers for aesthetic as well as to cut down the element the potential for the cakes are being too sweet "concern"!!!

Ahhhh well true that! Shop carrot cake is a bit too sweet for me too.
I wish I had your carrot cake! My mothers one is pretty nice, shes not too fond of sweet things so I find that one okay.
We have so much Wood Sorrel growing in my back yard, I really like the stuff but i never thought of using it like this. :3

Are you going to have your own business after you have finished your school? Or you will work for a jeweler?
