I am looking for a tasty and sturdy carrot cake recipe. It is for a large fondant covered wedding cake layer. I bought a few boxes of Betty Crocker carrot cake mix to enhance, but I'm too scared to try it as I haven't been impressed with any of the BC mixes. Suggestions?
Thanks!

I use the Cake Mix Doctor carrot cake recipe that starts with a yellow cake mix and uses real carrots. The Luau wedding cake in my pics is all carrot cake torted and filled with cream cheese icing and pineapple.

If you omit the raisins and nuts in this recipe, would you need to make any adjustments to compensate for that? It sounds like a great recipe to try, but I just have a lot of people who request no nuts or raisins.

Thanks,
Angie

I have a carrot cake recipe (it is very moist--might be more so than you are wanting), but I've never made a cake bigger than a 6" tripled (the candle cake in my pics), 9" doubled or a sheet cake. You're welcome to it if you want it, just PM me so I don't miss a post on here.
As for cake mixes, when I use & doctor them I only use DH.

I never put raisins or nuts in my carrot cake. So far, no one wants it that way. icon_smile.gif I make no adjustments to the recipe.
