Desserts: Carrot Cake/


Classic Carrot Cake with hints of cinnamon and clove made super moist by pineapple as a secret ingredient. Carrot Cake is fast becoming the most requested cake for wedding cakes because of it's tasty universal appeal. And with Carrots as the main ingredient you could even say it is healthy. Well, almost. When you ice it with my amazing Cream Cheese Icing you will have an incredible combination of flavors that are both classic and proof you are Cooking The Amazing.
