This is the best carrot cake I'd ever tasted, this is something that people who never cared for carrot cake before actually love.

Jelisa, we loved this carrot cake! Even my husband, who doesn't usually like things like this. Two out of my three kids loved it, which to me, is worth way more than 5 stars! The frosting is so creamy and delicious, and the cake isn't overpowered by a ton of spices. No raisins, which is a big plus with the family, and I left out the nuts to please the kids. The only difference I found was that the cake only took 35 minutes to cook in my 13 x 9 pan. It was perectly done, and any more time would have been too much, so for the next person that makes this, start testing early. There were no instructions for the frosting, but what else can you say about it--mix together and spread on the cooled cake, right? ;) Bottom line,this is a really good carrot cake that seems to satisfy both the lovers and haters of carrot cake! Thanks J!
