Carrot cake is a typical English recipe, probably with a Swiss origin, made with a carrot base and a cream cheese frosting. Here in Italy we have a sort of Carrot Cake as well, but it is quite different, with no frosting and no spices, in a word, much less delicious! I’m still in my sweet phase, and I’m taking up international sweets as well: I’ve plenty of recipes to try and I’ve even found new testers, like the guys in my office, who tasted my Carrot Cake… and really appreciated it!! They’ve volunteered as testers for my next cooking experiments 😉
I know today you were probably expecting some recipes to make Halloween treats, but I really didn’t have the time: I spent last weekend with my sister and her boyfriend, and since the weather was fine we decided to make the most of it and take Elisa around, and visit the town parks, and snuggling on the couch watching movies and crunching chips and popcorn 😉
Well, I’ll say goodbye and wish you a good week, I’m going to enjoy this last two days of vacation, I hope you’ll spend them great! Kisses and have a nice Monday!
