    Your bundt looks great. I really want to stick my fork into it! Great work with this month’s theme.

  3. Whoa, Carrie! You have been through the car wringer! I love that you have kept your sense of humor and optimism through it all. That shows a great deal of maturity so maybe you have reached your goal after all.

    Your Bundt is beautiful! I need to try your glaze recipe next time because it looks exactly like what I was trying to achieve: drippy sweet perfection.

    • If I didn’t laugh, I’d cry. Right? I didn’t even get into the destruction my own kids masterminded on our cars. That could be a whole other post!

      Usually I’m glaze-inept, but this one was the perfect consistency. Do let me know what you think of it!

  4. I’m glad the Subaru is working out! Car trouble can be a costly pain in the rear for sure. Now, for that gorgeous bundt cake, oh my!!!!!

  5. Oh my goodness, through all your car troubles at least you’ve certainly learned a lot. I learned a lot just reading this post!! Great info and hopefully you will have a smooth ride in the future with a future vehicle. And this cake looks amazing! Love buttermilk anything and well, you just cannot go wrong with salted caramel.

  6. Oh my gosh, Carrie…..I think I can hire you as my car mechanic at this point! Look at all you’ve learned! I’m having some funky karma with my car, my refrigerator and my air conditioning! I swear, mechanical problems are hovering over me like a big black cloud! But at least we have CAKE! And yours looks phenomenal! I so wish I could have a taste of this! : )

  7. Carrie,
    I loved reading this post. . learning about your car trials and tribulations. . but hey, wow! look at how much you know now!? Wow! I was all proud of myself for opening my hood and filling up the wiper fluid. HA! anyways. . loved this and gorgeous bundt cake!

    • I am the queen of turning a bad situation upside down and seeing what I can take away from it. I have to be! Good for you–most people don’t know their way around cars at all. My father jokes that my brother’s hands are on backwards. 😉

  8. Yum! I made a similar cake this month and yours looks wonderful– wishing I had some of your icing to drizzle on cake, ice cream or anything right about now!

  9. The tape player made me laugh. And girl, you do know how to repair your own car by now, most women never do! Next time, just be sure you have a few pieces of this outstanding bundt cake. Mmm..salted caramel, love it. It will make waiting for the tow truck much sweeter!

  10. What an ordeal dealing with all those car troubles. At least you have learned from it and are much more knowledgeable about cars than most folks your age or younger these days.
    And so true that at least there are delicious cakes like this one to take our minds off the daily troubles like car problems and such.
