Tips

Carrot Cheesecake

Carrot Cheesecake

I made this cake for my girlfriend's birthday and everyone loved it! But be sure to bake it in a 10 inch or larger springform pan. My first attempt was in a 9 inch and the middle was not set and a bit too high. I also used the can cream cheese frosting but made it special by adding just a teaspoon of pineapple juice and created a doily effect by forcing it through a small zip lock bag. I squiggled the frosting all over and then sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. Beautiful and delicious!

If you find you tend to over cook or have dry cakes ( i know hard to do with duncan hines) add a little chocolate pudding to a chocolate cake mix or applesauce to a yellow cake mix yummy!!!
