This month it’s all about the carrot. Carrot cake of course! I have a few options for you depending on your baking skill. Cover it with cream cheese frosting. Snap a photo. And possibly win a prize! So let’s kick off this April Baking Challenge!
With Easter approaching and spring on the horizon let’s get together and make a carrot cake!
I have a few different carrot cake recipes for you to choose from as well. From a simple sheet cake to a layer cake depending on your baking skill!
Here is how to participate in the challenge:
- Make and Comment: Bake this carrot cake and come back and comment and let me know how it went! You also have the option of making this easy carrot sheet cake made with part applesauce and part oil, or you can make the original version – this one bowl carrot cake.
- Share: Take a photo and share it by April 30, 11:59 EST. You have two options on how to share your photo:
- Share on Instagram. Just be sure to tag me – @bostongirlbakes and use the hashtag #bostongirbakes
- Facebook Community – I have started a brand new private Facebook group just for us! If you’re not already inside, click here to request access. Please note that I approve everyone manually to ensure the community remains a fun and friendly place, so it may take several days for your request to be approved.You can submit to one or the other, or to BOTH for two entries. Woo hoo double entries
This month I will be giving you a chance to win your own apron from Flirty Aprons of your choice ($30 or less value) + a $50 digital Amazon Gift card. I love my Flirty aprons – they are just so cute. They have aprons for women, men, and kids! Plus kitchen tools, farmhouse signs, even organic kitchen cleaning products!
Every person who submits a photo following those directions will be entered into the random giveaway! No purchase necessary.
And don’t worry about taking that perfect photo. The winner will be selected randomly. Your photos may be put on display to share with my entire audience! I will message the winner via the platform they posted the photo on (Facebook or Instagram). Winner must reply with their address to receive the gift card. If there’s no response within 48 hours a new winner will be chosen. I will purchase the gift card through the Amazon website.
Last Month’s Baking Challenge
Last month’s baking challenge: Irish Soda Bread
With March being a cold dreary month (at least for me!) and St. Patrick’s Day of course smack dab in the middle of the month who doesn’t love a warm loaf of bread that takes minutes to whip up?
It was so much fun seeing everyone’s twist on Irish Soda bread. From adding cheese (um, can you say brilliant?), fresh herbs, dried cherries even…it was clear you all had a fun time making this bread!
Check out some of the entries…
The winner was and she was notified! Congratulations!!!
