      Everyone enjoyed this dish. The cake was a bit dense and not too sweet, so the icing is a must. It is a little lower on the fat content than some of the other carrot cake recipes, esp if you substitute wherever possible (like with lowfat cream cheese). I didn't have a "10 by 4 inch tube pan" so I used an 9 by 13 inch pan and it filled out. It cooked for 45 minutes and that was plenty. Thanks for the recipe!
