This week's Sweet Melissa Sundays pick, Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting, was chosen by Julie of A Little Bit of Everything. I knew that I needed something amazing for a murder mystery dinner that I was going to, so I decided to make this cake into a bundt cake. It would be pretty easy to get everyone a piece at the reception along with the Lemon Meringue Cupcakes that I made.
This week was definitely really stressful. First, I had two midterms, one on Tuesday, the next on Wednesday. Then, I had somehow crashed my computer and I stayed up until about 5am to get Windows 7 from a friend. In addition, the next day I went over and stayed until about 2 - which isnt bad - to get Microsoft Office and all that. It's just been a hassle with my computer lately.
Everyone had told me that it was a wonderful and very nice carrot cake. I was unable to taste it since I had 2 ice cream sandwiches already by the time I had gotten to the cake. Everyone seemed to have really enjoyed it!
I made the original recipe for the cake, with this cream cheese glaze.
3oz of cream cheese, room temperature
3 T of milk
3 T of powdered sugar
Just mix all the ingredients together, until smooth. Add milk or powdered sugar to get to the consistency you want.
The Murder Mystery Dinner: at the Wedding Reception has been worked on by the Kiwanis Family committee of UC Berkeley Circle K for the past couple of weeks. We put together a plotline and characters. It was super fun to act and be someone different for a night. I was the angry drunk ex-girlfriend to the groom. We had gone out during our time at business school at Columbia. He was the only guy to ever dump me so I'm very bitter towards him. It was just fun to get dressed up and play something that I'm definitely not. I love my boyfriend, but it's fun to pretend! It was hilarious though, somehow throughout the night, everyone thought that I was pregnant which definitely was not a part of the plotline. I had a fun time Friday night, even though it is not the typical college Friday night.
