Just incase this happens to anyone else...here's WHY IT HAPPENS:

I made a carrot cake the other night, chilled it, and the next day the carrots were GREEN! No joke..

As I've now learned from a website dedicated to "the carrot", and a fellow caker: Due to chemical reactions between the carrot (peel or no peel) and baking powder/baking soda...the carrots can turn green when baked. It is not mold, as I originally thought... but I wasn't about to sell someone a green carrot cake. Needless to say, I'm taking carrot cake off my menu.

So, as a friendly FYI...no need to panic and grab the Hazmat Suit in fear of radioactive fallout from your cake...it's just some type of random chemical reaction.

Hope this helps someone... icon_smile.gif
