    I had never had carrot cake before, and was a little nervous about it...I don't want no veggies in my desserts! lol. These were so great though! I am now officially a carrot cake lover. They were easy to make and tasted great too. The frosting was also delcious and would be yummy on lots of things. Thanks so much for posting!

    These buns have made me a hero. They are my wife's new favourite dessert. If there's a few left over, they mysteriously disappear over the next couple of days. Vegetable oil instead of macadamia, and 1-1/2 tsp of ground mixed spice. Superb.
