Happiness through carrot cake
Do you think it’s possible to find happiness through a carrot cake? Or any cake for that matter? I believe that it is possible and I’m gonna tell you exactly how so 🙂
First of all, I have been a huge fan of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting ever since I had my very first slice 🙂 That first bite of a beautiful, fluffy cake is the best in my opinion – it’s pure enjoyment. I’m one of those people, who love baking, so I’ve been in the search for the best recipe, which have been quiet the challenge, but I think I finally found it (Find the recipe at the end of this blog post) 🙂
A happy process
For me, baking is a process – a happy process. I like to take my time to find out, what I’m craving and what sort of cake I want to bake – I normally find inspiration on Pinterest. After that I start preparing; putting on some good music, putting up my hair, washing my hands, finding all the things I need and then I can start baking. I take my time, while baking as it’s a time to enjoy as well as a fantastic way to take your mind of things and relief any stress.
Have you ever thought about the bubble of delicious aromas that surrounds you, when you’re baking? The floral sweetness of honey, the wonderful christmassy aroma of cinnamon or the woody fragance of nutmeg as you are adding and mixing the ingredients. And then when the cake is in the oven the smell of freshly baked cake start to fill into the kitchen and the rest of your home. These aromas equals hygge (Danish word similar to cosiness) and happiness in my world 🙂
Giving to others
It is well documented that giving will make one feel extremely good and help boost ones confidence – Especially when it’s something created with love.
Making others happy is one of my favourite things in life – and what better way to make someone happy than with a piece of carrot cake 😉
