Maybe you were sore from exhibiting such incredible self-control. I would have eaten the cake for sure.

Hope the event was a success! Sorry to have missed it.

Oh my. I want that cake!

(Though as kitchen workouts go, I think I prefer kneading bread dough. Less chance of spectacular disaster if my arms give out!)

I was the VERY lucky winner (Ok, truth be told, I stalked the bid sheet when they announced the section of items was closing. Fair is fair, I say, but I digress...) This cake was BY FAR!!! the most amazing carrot cake I've ever had. I was at the auction with 5 friends, and after a few left, I hunkered down with that mama (the cake) and the other mamas (the friends) and we each had gigantic pieces that would have been illegal in some states. The crust, the layers, the frosting - amazing! Please, please, please can we have the recipe? I mean, like, if you wanna give it, that's cool.

Tammy's carrot cake is my absolute favorite and better than any restaurant or bakery in my experience. I request it every year for my birthday.

I'm one of the lucky mamas (friends of cake winner) who got to indulge in what can only be described as a spiritual cake-eating experience on Saturday night, post-benefit. That cake is... no words to describe it. Suffice it to say, your carrot cake provided me one of the greatest culinary highs of my life - and it didn't involve chocolate. Truly remarkable. Am still nibbling on a chunk I was allowed to bring home - which I would have stolen, had cake-winner not offered it. Please let me know where/when you plan to auction off another one - I am there, checkbook and fork in hand.

That carrot cake looks deliciously yummy... I'd love to make it but have no idea how to find equivalent ingredients as a Brit living in France: canola oil - I have no idea what that is; cream cheese - in bricks? WTF? Any help would be much, much appreciated as carrot cake is my absolute total favourite ever...

Taking pains not to drool on my keyboard. When you come up with a workout that involves eating carrot cake, let me know =)

melch: Ha, you will be the first to know!

Kirsty: See my e-mail. You can substitute vegetable oil for canola oil (butter, too, though the oil tends to give the cake more moistness). The cream cheese here tends to come in half pound bricks. You need a full pound of cream cheese (453 grams). Hope you try it!

Laura: Thank you so much! I've sent you an e-mail.

Husband: I'm surprised that cake made it out of the house alive!

Judy: I'm so glad you won and that you liked it! See my e-mail for the recipe. In the meantime, if anyone else would like the recipe, it's here: http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2008/02/carrot-cake-for.html
(forgive the horrible photo and ridiculous post)

adele: Kneading bread dough is a satisfying workout, isn't it? I find it to be great therapy for my arthritic wrists.

Julia: The event was great. Big turnout, excellent food by Newbury College culinary students, lots of fun had by all.

Maybe a bit late for Kirsty, but FYI: canola oil is called rapeseed oil in the UK. Not sure what it's called in France, though.
