Q&A with skisue

Jam_Monster asked:
looks absolutely amazing, what flavour cake did you use? do you mind sharing the recipe? :)
skisue answered:
It was carrot cake! I basically use box cake mixes and doctor them for my elevation and tastes. This one added crushed pineapple with the oil, eggs and water. I always freeze after baking and before decorating so you have a firm settled cake to work on.
