      This is the bomb carrot cake. I actually sell cakes for a living and this tis he recipe I use with one exception. I don't use the buttermilk glaze and the cake is still very good. I found that the buttermilk glaze makes the cake too wet and waaay too rich. The cake is excellent without it and I get plenty of request for this cake.

      This is the best carrot cake. You don't have to look further. It is very moist, rich and it gets better with days. I didn't make the glaze just cream cheese frosting with little bit of orange zest. I also used 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of white sugar for darker color. I made it for Valentine's day and my husband loved it. Thank you
