Hi all! My sister asked me to make a grooms cake, but he doesn’t like traditional cake, he only likes carrot cake! Does anyone have a great carrot cake recipe that is also carvable?? I’m not putting fondant over it, probably just a good amount of cream cheese icing.
what is the end carved product -- i would use a box mix and not add any carrots
I have what I think is an excellent orange carrot cake recipe, but it calls for nuts and carrots and probably would not be good for carving. It also calls for 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper that when I first heard of putting that in a carrot cake, I thought the person was nuts. But I decided to try it and it is really good! I was also told to try the same amount of cayenne pepper in a chocolate cake. That one I haven't tried yet as I'm not big on chocolate cakes.
it's a lovely thing in chocolate cake -- i also use saigon cinnamon in there and use a sour cream and cream cheese filling to balance the spiciness -- it's a wonderful cake --
i never thought of it for carrot though -- that would really be a good thing in there -- i also use it in gingerbread cookies -- it's not bitter like ginger can get -- it's a clean clear soft heat that really works like crazy

Perfect texture for crarving and would taste great w/cr ch icing.
