of cakes and carrotsPosted: March 17, 2014
Almost thirty years ago, we needed a baker to make a wedding cake. We stopped at Arabica on Coventry in Cleveland Heights ( where all the hippies lived ) and asked the baker if he would consider making a carrot cake wedding cake for us. He shrugged his shoulders. Sure I could give it a try. If that cake leaned and wobbled a bit – it sure tasted great.
The other day I was having lunch at Eddie Merlot’s restaurant and the menu called out “world’s greatest carrot cake”.
Talk is cheap, but I tried a piece and thought…. this is pretty good, they just might be right.
So for Jan’s 60th birthday party ( like I was going to bake a cake ) I asked and Eddie Merlot’s graciously agreed to make me a cake.
So we celebrated with food, carrot cake, and a few bottles of champagne.
May you celebrate many joys….
