# 3 Fail: Proportion

Moist and nicely spiced carrot cake. Only, there is too much carrot! This is a new genre of fail recipes, the first two fails were planned with confidence. This cake however was surely a fail before I began to make it! The recipe calls for 6 cups of grated carrot, 4 eggs, 3 cups of flour, 1 can of crushed pineapple.. etc. I don't have all of that.
i found 5 skinny carrots
shredded them in my food processor
5 skinny carrots made 2 cups of shredded carrot, 1/4 cup brown sugar to that
the recipe called for 4 eggs, I only have 1, add 1/2 cup white sugar
it also called for vanilla extract.. i used this stuff
barely 2 cups of flour, mix in 1 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp salt
at least i have cinnamon
this was sad, incorporate the flour to eggs

then mix in carrot, and this was when i realized there was more carrot than batter. FAIL

lightly greased and lined the pan

light spreadable cream cheese for frosting

looks like an omelet

take 2 dollops of cream cheese, with a good spoonful of shredded coconut and mix!

voila! it didn't taste bad..there were just too many carrots. Very moist
