  3. It does look delicious, but for me, it's the usual frosting which I want, I could almost eat that without the cake part.

    1. It's not a sickly sweet dessert, either.

      Read your post about leaving and that sounds like a good choice for you. You're so super duper busy, something had to give.

    1. I'll take you up on that offer. Thanks bunches. It's a nice cake that's not sickly sweet.

      Whoosh for sure. You've got tons going on right now but I was up and sent you a little howdy morning email.

      Today is clean sheet day, here. But I'm also day dreaming of when it's our own land and house on it. Ah ... someday, someday.

  14. I usually skip the frosting on my carrot cakes, because they are good without it. Yours does look great though. How do you make caramel without dairy?

    1. Hi Lloyd. I whip up many different kinds of caramel but for the topping in the picture .....

      I used tinned full-fat coconut milk to replace the double cream. Coconut oil to replace the butter. Dark Canadian maple syrup for the sugar and then a wee bit of coconut sugar for a little depth. Not the crystals but the coconut sugar that looks like brown sugar.

      And bing, bang boom. Smooth runny caramel.
