This made my house smell soo delicious! I'm not sure if the texture is right (it is pretty crumbly) never having eaten it before, but it tastes great. My children were even saying how good it smelled. I should add that I left out the bread crumbs (by accident) and I added cinnamon to the start because a different recipe used it and I love cinnamon. I plan on making this again and think maybe the bread will give it a more spreadable consistancy.

Yellow Cake
The cake didn't rise properly so the presentation wasn't good so I gave it 4 stars. I had to improvise a bit and ended up using soymilk in place of orange juice and orange extract in place of vanilla. The changes went over well-it had a great flavor and there wasn't any leftover!

Carrot Cake III
I don't eat carrot cake, but I made this for Father's Day and everyone loved it. One person told me it was the best carrot cake he's ever eaten. I gave it five stars for the simplicity of making it. I followed the recipe almost exactly. I used walnuts instead of pecans and I didn't add them to the icing, but topped the cake with them. Lastly, I baked it in a springform pan so I had to cook it an extra 20 minutes.
