    MizzNezz's Note:

    Chock full of flavor, this is the best carrot cake! It tastes even better the next day after the flavors meld. A tad more time consuming than the average carrot cake, but well worth it!

      This carrot cake is by far better than any I have ever tasted. I agree with Jeff, it is worth at least 100 stars. The cake is moist and tender and the buttermilk glaze adds another layer of richness. The cream cheese frosting is sweet and sooo creamy. Talk about a sugar high--wowie!! Thanks MizzNezz, you have really outdone yourself.

      Wow!! Not enough starts in the universe to rate this one. Carrot cake is my husband's favorite, so I chose to make this my first recipe tried from zaar... he is still floating somewhere close to the ceiling! I thought there were so many recipes here I might have to try dozens of the same thing to find the one we like best... believe me, this is the ONLY carrot cake recipe we will try! Easier to make that I thought from the description. Flavors of ingredients blend so beautifully, and the cake stays so wonderfully moist!! To us, the walnuts were integral, and next time I think I will even chop them even finer so they are in every morsel of the cake. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
