If you know me at all, you know I love holidays! I love making fun food on April Fool’s Day, green food on St. Patrick’s Day and absolutely anything Spring-y or colorful for Easter. So when the Secret Recipe Club put out an all call for and extra reveal day to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day or Easter, I was all in. (I’ll use any excuse to bake!)
My assigned blog (because that’s how the SRC works. You get assigned a secret blog each month and have to make a recipe from it. Then we all post it on the same day and ohh and ahh over them all. Yes, that’s how we roll.) Anywho… my assigned blog for this Holiday themed reveal was Thyme for Cooking. Katie is the author of this wonderful blog and it’s filled with delicious looking recipes like her Apple Crisp or her Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread.
Sadly, there weren’t really any St. Patrick’s Day or Easter recipes except for Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs or Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. So… Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting was the winner.
I decided to make mini cakes (since I was going to take these to friends.) They rose more than I thought they would.
So I decided to cup off the tops to level them out. That way they could hold more frosting (which is always a plus.)
Then the best part… the cream cheese frosting.
