Hi all,

I have a request for a carrot cake filled w/ cream cheese icing carved into a musical note. Does anyone have a great tasting recipe but that can withhold the carving? Any tips, advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
dtmc

I know this is very late, but I see when I did a search on this site (I'm doing a carrot cake today also) that there are quite a few mentioned in the forums as well as listed in the recipe section. Did you ever find a recipe?

So sorry I missed this.. here is the recipe I use. It is very good and VERY dense. It would carve well for sure!

Carrot Cake

3 sticks, plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 cups grated carrots
1 cup chopped toasted pecans

I'm not at my home right now or I would give you the recipe, but the very best carrot cake that I've made is Colette Peters' recipe. I get rave reviews and is the most requested cake that I make. It freezes well and carves great.

No problem!! I get RAVES for this cake. It is very rich and very moist. I usually make it in smaller pans, so you just have to watch it. Just make sure it doesn't get over done. It is very buttery and oh so good paired with cream cheese frosting.. mmmmmmmmmm!!!

Do you use the crusting cream cheese frosting from this site? If not, what is the recipe you use?

Thanks again!!

I have not used the crusting CC recipe.. I like the Whipped Cream Frosting from here for a cream cheese frosting, but it is soft and doesn't crust. usually I use the CC frosting as filling and ice it with SMBC.. I have heard you can add CC to the SMBC but I haven't tried it yet.. I don't like crusting frostings normally.. unless I am doing a carved cake that needs a lot of detailing. HTH's and let me know how the cake turns out! icon_biggrin.gif

Okay, great. Thanks for those tips. I will definitely give you a followup when I'm done. Don't expect much, though, as I'm still learning all this. LOL!!

Oh come on girl!! Give yourself a little credit. I looked at your pictures and you do a nice job! I just hope you like the cake as much as my family does. thumbs_up.gif

For some reason I always feel nervous recommending a recipe.. LOL. Silly I know.

Would it be possible to have a copy of Collette's Carrot Cake that you mentioned in Cake Central a while ago?

Sorry but I'm locking this thread - this is from 5 years ago and chances are you will NOT get a response as I've never seen those member names before.  Just didn't want you tp get your hopes up that they will answer you because they probably won't.

 

My best advice is for you to buy Colette's book containing the recipe.
