Cooking attempt #3

.. and a successful one might i add! =D

(click here for the 1st and 2nd attempts)

I simply love carrots cake.. oo i had this recipe that i've been wanting to try for a while but i always thought enna it's too difficult for me! u know.. coz i'll have to actually make the cake! not simply use SaraLee's pound cake and add some kind of topping oo 5ala9na.. la2 this was the real deal! ;p

the other day i had nothing to do so i said why not give it a shot.. at least i'm not doing it for an occasion fa if anything went wrong it's ok..

so i started off with preparing the ingredients..





and just as i was about to pour the mixture bil pan i realised that i must divide the cake batter into two pans oo i only had one! =/
i had to bake each layer seperately fa it took me around 3 hours to finish it..
but the result was compeletely worth the hassle and the wait!

my fellow bloggers.. i now present u my pride and joy..





omg i can't believe that i actually made this piece of art from scratch!
i'm soooo happy!
i'm a good cook after all! =D


and here's a link to the recipe..
