lol, nevermind. Martin just came in and I said "Taste that" thinking he would go "Yuck" but he said "That's awesome." I said, "You don't think it's too sweet?" He just repeated "No - That's AWESOME." haha, guess it's not bad afterall. Woohooo! I'll post the final pics after everything has cooled and is iced. smile78.gif

it is suppose to be sweet...but creamy at the same time.

 

Just make sure that the whole cake is totally cold...otherwise the icing will liquify

Yes! I took them, just have to upload them... will try and do that tomorrow. It was a little like the Leaning Tower of Carrot Cake but all in all turned out ok ~ Tasted great so that's what matters!

OH, and apparently it's also Martin's Mom's fav cake (she's a BADA$$ chef) so she requested a piece and Martin said she all but licked the plate clean - 2 thumbs up wink.gif

I have better pics of the cake itself after decorations but I can't find them right now.

Btw, FMIL was so impressed she gave me a trophy (LOL) for my first 3 Layer Cake and then this Xmas she bought me 3 nice cake pans, flour sifter, etc...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
