|A mountain scaled.|
|"Sliced thinly", so the recipe says. These here are not thin enough. You should be able to almost 'see through' the slices, otherwise, they affect the cake cutting later.|
|Cook with cinnamon and brown sugar. Leave to cool, then mix in raisins, grated carrot and ground hazelnut|
|This was when I gave up on the step-by-step photography and focused on getting the cake right instead.|
Here's how it looked just before going into the oven.
|I got busy and it overcooked by about 6-7 minutes or so and caused some cracklines, the crevices of my little everest|
|It should be given more time to cool but I didn't have that much time and it felt a little too soft to handle. I learned later you should always make a cake a day before you need it.|
So here's the final product. No pictures of the sliced cake as I got too busy chatting with friends by then. (Update: click here for a picture of the sliced cake taken the morning after.)
|Not enough cheese topping, was one of the feedback. I think she's right! I like to get specific honest constructive feedback but not too harsh to scare me from trying again!|
