LOVED IT!!! Only thing I changed was I needed more icing so I doubled that part. I have people asking for the recipe all the time.

This was a moist carrot cake. I cooked it according to the recipe and it turned out delicious. The lemon cream cheese frosting was a perfect compliment. Everyone raved about it, even the young girl that doesn't like fruit!

I had to run around to gather all the ingredients, but it was worth it. Amazing!! It's dense, delicious, and moist.
