|Topping it all off

Icing. I'm not good at icing. When I make it from scratch it's always too thin when I want it thick or too thick when I want it thin. And no amounts of extra water or icing sugar can amend these disasters of science. Sometimes I think my icing is destined to be the morter in a cake wall. So last night I make a pre-birthday carrot cake for my man and I to share. And yup you guessed it, the cake ended up floating in a goopy puddle of icing. Like a lone island of carrot and walnut with lemon waves lapping at its shores. Still tastes good tho. Just doesn't look like the appetizing softly iced cake I was aiming for. Patience. I must cultivate patience in all things cake.
