Carrot Cake is a classic celebratory dessert. It’s the go-to birthday cake for those who aren’t chocolate or ‘birthday cake’ fans. It’s also just great to make when you have lots of carrots. People don’t often think of a vegetable-based cake, unless it’s carrot. Carrot pairs excellently with walnuts, pecans, and lemon or cream cheese frostings.
