Sunflower Cake

September is a busy month in my family. There are a lot of birthdays and that means a lot of cakes for me to make. My mom was very specific with what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday: a carrot cake with cream cheese icing decorated with sunflowers. I cheated and used a boxed cake mix because I had to make three cakes this week and I didn't feel like grating carrots. I did, however, make my own cream cheese icing.

Cream Cheese Icing
1 8oz. block of cream cheese
1 stick of butter
5 - 6 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream together cream cheese, butter, and vanilla. Add powdered sugar one cup at a time and beat well. Store in refrigerator.

  1. Gorgeous! I'm always so impressed by people who can legibly write on cakes - mine usually look like they were created by a three year old. :)
