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.

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

post #5 of 5   Perfect for your needs! :)   I don't use a carrot mix.....get a spice mix & add 1 cup of fresh grated carrots and a jar of babyfood carrots (the larger Jr. jar) along w/the rest of the ingredients.  Perfect texture for crarving and would taste great w/cr ch icing.
