    sunnybono's Note:

    I found this recipe in a Southern Living cookbook and it is the BEST!!! I am a custom cake baker and decorator and am always hunting for great cake recipes. I know it looks intimidating, as the recipe has 3 parts: Cake, Glaze and Frosting...that's why there's soo many ingredients listed. Every time I make this cake people literally go crazy...I've even had a marriage proposal over this one! Watch out might just get yourself hitched.

      Great recipe, this is a wonderful, moist carrot cake that stays fresh for several days! I have been making this for over a year now and here are the modifications I have come up with: Use only 1/2 cups of sugar in cake batter. Grease and flour a 13x9 cake pan. Bake cake 30 min. Then tent loosely w/ foil. Continue to bake until tester inserted comes out clean, another 15 min. Remove from oven. Poke all over w/ bamboo skewer. Add glaze while cake is still hot. I also add 1 tsp of cinnamon in the frosting. Thanks for posting, sunny, this alwasy gets rave reviews!

      I am pretty much devastated by the way this cake turned out. I thought it sounded delicious and the cake batter tasted unbelievably good. I followed this recipe to a tee and the cakes came out looking beautiful. I made the buttermilk glaze, even letting it boil a little longer than 4 minutes, and poured the glaze over the warm cakes. I let them sit for 15 minutes and tried to turn them out. They are all a soggy mess! I am so disappointed! This was to be our family Easter cake for Easter tomorrow and I'm left with a pile of mushy cake! Too late and too expensive to do this over so it looks like I have the option of either serving carrot cake pudding or serving nothing at all.<br/><br/>Wanted to give an update. Even though the cake looked like heck, everyone really liked it. It's still too moist, in my opinion, but the flavor of it is delicious. I will probably make the cake again but leave the glaze off. So I'm upgrading my 1 star rating to 3 stars since it was well received despite the pitiful look of it.
