OH Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!! More Cake Needed!

My Cuttlebug has died and its not fixable :(
My darling husband has tried really hard to fix it but its totally ------! << insert word!

SO I am machineless! Nooooooooooooooooo!
time for a think about what machine embossing and cutting machine to buy?
and thinking requires CAKE!

Fresh Homemade Carrot cake!

Here is the recipe and its brilliant works a treat!
I did not add the sultanas because my son does not like them but he really LOVES this carrot cake!
so that is brilliant! and cut into 12 pieces its only 189 calories per slice :0)

Now if my Cuttlebug breaking was not enough my camera decided to play up and delete my photo's as I was loading them so I can not share my Incy Wincy card because I can not take another photo of the card because its at work  Doh!!
so please join the girls on the challenge the Challenge theme is Animal Antics

  1. Not the best day then hunny! Instead of cake, I would recommend the Grand Calibur - am loving mine.

  2. Oh dear! Your cake looks yummy though. Off to check out the recipe now...
    hugs Sue xx

  3. Sounds like a bad day Samantha. Poor bug, expect it's been very well used, like mine!

    That carrot cake looks yummy. I have a brilliant recipe for carrot cake. It's made in my microwave and makes a very big cake. Not so good if you're trying not to eat cakes and other goodies. I'm off to check out the recipe now.

  4. Hi Samantha
    You must be super gutted! R.I.P cuttlebug. Now the decision what to replace it with...
    I hope your camera sorts itself out... doesn't just technology drive you crazy sometimes!
    Your carrot cake looks soooo tasty.

  5. Oh, poor you! That sounds like a rubbish day...apart from the cake! I hope you get a new machine soon :-)

  6. Oh dear. same thing happened with my cuttlebug, same type I think. It just exploded on me and I was lucky not to get hit by the parts... I changed to the big shot, I love it. Much sturdier than the cuttlebug... hope you'll get a new little machine soon... hugs to you!

  7. Hi Samantha, I've got a great recipe for beet root cake, just in case you run out of carrots! Xx

  8. Oh no, not fixable. That's bad. But the cake looks like it could fix a few problems!! Save me a piece could you, it looks yummy and I love carrot cake.
    Hope you get some good luck soon honey.

  9. certainly a time for cake moment, I have had my big shot for over 3 years and it gets some abuse but still keeps going.they are really sturdy.

    xx coops xx

  10. OMG, the same happened to my cuttlebug. And everybody told me, it was my fault. Ha, here comes the proof : I´m not a violent lady :)). I hope you´ll find a better machine. Thanks for the photo of the cake: I´m really hungry now *LOL*. Regards Renata

  11. This is terrible, horrible, VERY bad!!! I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll have a moment of silence before I leave :( ..................................................
    The cakes however look AMAZING!!!!!

  12. Life can be overwhelming at times but I love your idea of eating cake. Totally works for me! Hang in there, it will get better. :) Hugs

  13. You must have been working your bug too hard, Samantha! I don't know what I'd do without my big kick, which I've had for years now, you must be gutted! At least it means you can choose a nice new, shiny one though :P Your carrot cake looks amazing and will, I'm sure, make everything a little better! Lisa x

  14. I like your way of thinking and having cake! I'm looking at the new fiskars one.
