I love cake batter

Last night I made carrot cake cupcakes - it was my first time trying and I think they turned out well! When I was making them I remembered how much I looooove cake batter. I almost sacrificed one cupcake so I could eat the batter.

Actually, making that carrot cake brought me back to one of my birthday parties in middle school. We swam at the pool all day and then had a cake batter party. We just made up a bunch of cake batter and ate it, then baked what we didn't eat. I can't believe our parents let us do that.

Anywho. I've decided I really like carrot cake. It's moist and lightly spiced. I also decided I didn't like the icing that was featured with that cake. I don't know why. My anti-sweet tooth must be trying to tell me something. I livened it up with some orange zest and orange juice, and dyed it light orange. The picture there isn't quite as bright as the real deal. I have poor lighting in my kitchen, I think, and I don't really want to borrow the bf's garage floodlight just to take good pictures for a food website (although he does think its cute how much time I spend on here, and that I blog about food).

My Dad's birthday is today so my Mom is making him a German Chocolate cake. There might be some left when I get home tomorrow. beaucoup de cake!

I love carrot cake. But I also have the anti-sweet tooth. I think I'm the only person I know who doesn't like chocolate... Anyway, your cupcakes look great!! :]

I don't usually want chocolate, but when I do, oh boy! Oi, looking at this just makes me want some more batter.

Yes I could probably just eat a bowl full of batter!

Oh now my mom is claiming she doesn't remember the cake batter party. But I swear it happened.

About Me
I enjoy trying new recipes and unusual ingredients. There are few foods I will turn down without a second thought - sweets is one of them, and fiery hot spicy food is the other. As I'm getting older that is changing, though. I love reading cook books and doing research about food. It fascinates to no end! I usually create a recipe from several different ones. On the non-cooking side of things, I'm a Christian, native Texan and faithful Longhorn with two cats and a great boyfriend! I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. I'm also somewhat obsessed with the nuclear winter and extreme survival situations.
My favorite things to cook
In general I try to cook from scratch. Any kind of bread - rolls, loaves, boules, baguettes, buns, biscuits, quick breads - will catch my eye. Pastas, soups, and cookies. I am absolutely in love with cake batter. Once I had a party in middle school where we just made a bunch of cakes and ate the batter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey/waldorf salad/mashed potatoes with gravy by my mom, buttermilk biscuits on Sunday morning before church from my Dad, grilling hamburgers in the summer in the backyard, black eyed peas for new years dinner, decorating sugar cookies on Christmas Eve with my sister, coffee any time of the night.
My cooking triumphs
I can rival my dad in his biscuit making ability. I have the perfect dinner roll recipe - my very own. I taught myself how to make jam and jelly. I taught myself how to make bread!
My cooking tragedies
dense as a stone wheat bread, homemade condensed milk tastes weird key lime pie, onions and sugar have no place hanging out together in mashed sweet potato, there's nothing puffy about my lemon meringue, and the bottom of the fish tank poached salmon.
