READY IN: 1hr 5mins

I made these from playing around with the assistance of another recipe. The sauce was initally intended for roasted chicken but I used it for roasted carrots. It smelled so good while it was cooking, my husband came home and thought there was a cake in the oven, hence the name cake roasted carrots!! They come out soooo sweet and good, my 2 y/o son said they were candy carrots, YUM. All measurements are approximates and you can change to suit your taste.
