Packing heavy for a trip to Tuscany

15 pounds of carrots
4 dozen eggs
20 packets of cream cheese
5 pounds of sugar
5 pounds of flour
2 1/2 lbs of walnuts
2 1/2 lbs of butter
1 heavy-duty mixer
1 food processor with grater attachment
4 vegetable peelers
A packet of drinking straws
A palette knife

This is just a sample of what I'm taking to Tuscany for the wedding of my friends Kathryn and Tristan on Friday.
Guess who's baking the cake?
And guess what kind of cake it is?
That's right, Rose Bakery's world-famous carrot cake!
I'll be back on Sunday to tell you all about it, with pictures.
Wish me luck...

I bet the Tuscans don't know you can make a cake with carrots! What a great idea for a wedding cake - and what a super place to get married...

Yes, the caterers (who were from a town near Parma, where the bride's family lives) were politely baffled! It was indeed an amazing place to get married... more in my next post.
