I have a tried and true cake recipe that I use for all my cakes with just a little adjustment to suit tastes and flavors. Carrot cake however is eluding me! It's such a moist cake so it doesn't lend it's self to much decorating. A customer has asked for a carrot cake shaped into a solo cup! Help!
Really? I never have a problem decorating carrot cake. My carrot cakes are really dense and moist, but not brick-like. Most carrot cake recipes are basically the same in my opinion. I don't put coconut or pineapple in mine. Mine is generally just carrots and sometimes I throw in toasted pecans or walnuts. Can you post the recipe you're using? There are good recipes on this site, or you could try Allrecipes. I think one on here I tried was called Carrot Cake or Banana Cake, because it could be used for either.
