“This is my FAVORITE Carrot Cake recipe. It is so versatile... the same recipe can be used to make a sheet cake, a 2-layer cake or 24 cupcakes. The frosting pipes perfectly, so is ideal if a decorated cake is needed. The recipe can be easily halved to make a smaller cake. And it is an extremely moist cake.”
