20 of the most awkward cakes

In the era of cupcake fanatics and cake decorating fads, these cakes stand out among the rest. But not because of their beauty, skillfully created design or artistic merit.

These have to be some of the most awkward…and unappetizing…cakes around.

Bon Appetite.

Dreaming about cupcakes

Last night I had a dream I was eating the red velvet cupcake from Georgetown Cupcakes. That was my favorite type when I lived there this summer.

Now that I’m on the paleo diet, however, doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy a good baked good once in awhile. I found a great website for paleo friendly, gluten free baked goods.

I tried out one of their muffin recipes the other day. They were even better than those bought at the store or in a box.

My next food experiment; Carrot Cake!

From the paleofood.com:

6 eggs, separated
1/2 cup honey (or less)
1 1/2 cups carrots, cooked and pureed
1 Tlbs grated orange rind
1 Tlbs frozen orange juice
3 cups almond flour

Preheat over to 325° F.
Beat the egg yolks and honey together. Mix in carrot puree, orange rind,
orange juice and almond flour. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in.
Spoon into a greased loose bottomed 9 inch springform pan. Bake for about
50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out
clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to
cool completely.
