Carrot Financier Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

For my dating anniversary with my husband (9 years) I made his favorite cake- carrot cake.  (We celebrate both dating and wedding anniversaries.)  The financier cake on it's own is again, a little drier because of the almond flour. But the cream cheese frosting in TSOB that goes with it was runnier than most, it had rum and lemon juice in it.  So good!  I also added coconut and pecans and of course after I threw both on the cake, I realized I should have toasted them first.  Oh well, next time.

For the next TSOB recipe, it's back to the cookie chapter.  I already made Chinese Almond Cookies.  We'll see which one sounds good now.
