I have a wedding in two weeks and the couple wants carrot cake. There are so many recipes on the site that I can't narrow any one of them down because they all look great. Do any of you know of a really good carrot cake recipe and do you know if it will hold up well for a six tier wedding cake covered in fondant.

My recipe for carrot cake is basically the same as Macsmom but I don't use pineapple, I use undrained can of mandarin oranges and one tablespoon of orange zest. It's always a hit.
