O. M. G. YUM! This was delicious. By far one of the best cakes I’ve made to date. Carrot Cake has always been a favorite of mine, but the biggest fan award goes to my mother. Her birthday is September 1st, and almost every year, she asks for a carrot cake. Here’s a photo from last year’s carrot cake (from Alyssa’s Cakery).
I will not tell a lie – this cake was good and so moist (I hate that word, but it was)! My mother, who hates sweet things and usually wipes off the frostings I make, went back for seconds (and thirds) on this cake.
If you’re interested in this delicious cake – head over to Yesterfood for the recipe! I have to be honest, I was not a fan of the frosting. But let me clarify, it was delicious. I’m partial to buttercream frosting, so I was expecting a thicker frosting (as shown in the photos on Yesterfood’s site). The frosting seemed to slip off the cake once it got to room temperature. I’m not too sure how to fix this – so any suggestions would be great! We added more confectioners sugar to thicken it up. And luckily I love cold cake, so it was a win-win. If you do leave cake in the fridge, place a piece of parchment paper on the exposed areas of the cake to lock in the moisture.
Kick off your fall and satisfy your sweet tooth with this delicious dessert!
