Weekly Photo Challenge – Colours of Carrot Cake

08 Apr

As I was collecting everything for making Carrot cakes this morning,  I realised how beautifully colourful the whole process was from the nearly white flour with the spices in, to the taupe of the soft brown sugar, the golden yellow of the eggs with a swirl of burnt umber of vanilla to the deep orange of the mixture with flecks of  brighter orange carrot to the shiny golden brown of the baked buns!  All very beautiful!

    These look yummy! Are those cupcake wrappers silicone or paper? Such interesting shapes! Now you have me thinking that I should pick a dish and photograph it as I go along. I think that I come to take advantage of my kitchen, moving through recipes on auto pilot and not appreciating the colors. I appreciate the smells! I just don’t pay enough attention to the colors. This post will change that!

        I have red shallots planted, over wintering, and planting purple hot peppers next week. I’m also planting green tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, orange cauliflower, and, of course, Dahlias!

      Sorry! forget to say – these are all silicone as I was making them for home consumption! When I bake for others, I use paper – and there are some delightful paper ones these days too.

      Cheers, Sally 🙂

        Thank you! I’ll look and see what I can find, those silicone cups are adorable! Yes, for others, I use paper. For relatives, though, I can use silicone, as I know I’ll get them back 😉
        New, neat paper cups? I’ll look around!

    This is delightful, your photographs, the beautiful rich colors of the ingredients (of carrot cake), And the knowledge you get to eat the fruits of your labors! 🙂 If I could have had an actual piece of the cake it would have been perfect! 😉

      I have packaged up a virtual Carrot Cup Cake for you! Hope it makes it safely and that you enjoy it with a cup of good coffee! So glad you liked the post. I was delighted with the circles gallery on this one. 🙂

        Thank you Sally! I can almost taste it now. Yes, carrot cake is almost at the top of my list for favorite desserts and I’m guessing yours was just delicious. I liked the way you did the circles gallery also. Added to the whole effect. 🙂

          Glad you enjoyed it! I was pleased with the effect of the circles gallery on this one – it suited the topic as most thing were in round bowls anyway. Thanks for you lovely comments. 🙂

    My husband and I LOVE carrot cake! No raisins though and thick cream cheese frosting!
