Notes

My Sire loves Carrot Cake and this is the formula that I use to make it, for his birthday this year we brought some of this cake to an after party and a few friends got a taste, it was a hit and now I wish to share it with them and anyone else.

I made this for a friends birthday a while ago and it was really tasty! A lot of carrot cake seems rather bland, but this one was great.
