Carrot Cake....The Best EVER!

My baking confidence grows.....this time it was Carrot Cake. I've been kicking it around in my head that I wanted to bring it for Easter dinner...but I wanted to to try it first to make sure I could really do it. Well, ta da!!!! It turned out AMAZING!!!!! JUST like my real life friend Marzipan's. I truly can't thank her enough for all of her support and makes me so happy to make such wonderful things for my family and friends.

Some things I learned were:

1. There is a whole pound of carrots in carrot cake.
2. You have to steam the raisins first, before mixing them in.
3. The cream cheese frosting is yummy....but next time I would make extra...there was JUST enough, and I would have liked a bit more.

Click HERE to get the recipe from Marzipan's blog.....and be sure to peek around, you won't be dissappointed!
