Light Carrot Cake with Fluffy Cream Cheese Icing
Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Compatible, Vegan
We met some very interesting people at the Maker Faire last month, and someone asked about carrot cake. This has been on my list of things to do for a while. What you see here is my first time making carrot cake, and according to everyone that ate it, I did a great job.
After making this version, and chatting with someone about traditional cake, I decided to go online and scope out what traditional carrot cake is really all about. There are versions with raisins, currants, pineapple, and more. The Papa and I talked about it, and he really loved the original version, but being me, I needed to experiment a little bit. In the end, he enjoyed my original creation when compared to new ideas from the pesky internet.
