Best Carrot Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

The Best Carrot Cake, moist until gone! Delicious!
The Best Carrot Cake.

My daughter is the cake maker/baker. She has made many cakes, by special request and special order. To offer you a peek, check out the the following.....

This cake to put away safely (in the freezer) for the first-anniversary celebration. 

This cake to welcome a new baby.

This cake to honor the request for a themed birthday party. 

She knows cake and has a great imagination to bake what is needed and wanted by those friends requesting a cake. So obviously when she says this is her go-to carrot cake, my ears are at attention because I love carrot cake!

I did not make this cake, but I did get to eat this cake and it deserves a spot here on the blog, because it will be baked in my kitchen, as soon as I have one again! This is one of those cakes that takes nothing more than a wooden spoon to get it in the oven. 

Made for Valentine's Day, using heart-shaped layer pans.

4 c powdered sugar (you may not need all the sugar, start with 3 cups)

Cream together cheese and butter, add vanilla along with 3 c powdered sugar beat well for 5-10 minutes until very glossy and creamy. Add additional sugar if mixture seems too thin. Spread between and on top of cake. Top or decorate with additional walnuts if desired.
