The Best Carrot Cake Ever…I’m Serious, it’s AMAZING!

Years ago when I started working as a Personal Chef (I’ll tell you about that in another post), I learned that you have to offer people a wide range of menu items and options. One challenge is learning to make something your client will enjoy even if it’s something I don’t particularly like. Salmon, not a fan. Did I cook it 100 times for clients? Sure did! During that time I was getting a lot of requests for gourmet cakes and cupcakes, word was spreading. There came a day I got an order for a Carrot Cake. I’ve never been a big traditional carrot cake person. I don’t like raisins, I also don’t like chunks of nuts and pineapple in cake. I think cake should have a smooth moist texture.

With everything I cook, I like to put my own little twist on something when I can. I decided to make this carrot cake a little different. Not only is the cake so good…but so is the frosting. I remember a time when I owned my bakery (I’ll tell you all about that too) I had one customer order a slice of Carrot Cake, when she was finished she came back up and ask if she could just have some frosting! I gladly gave her a little cup full of frosting which she proceeded to enjoy with a spoon! To be honest, it became one of my most requested and raved about cakes. When I go back home to visit Connecticut, I usually have some requests for it from past clients.

  

Today I had my favorite little baking partner helping me. He couldn’t be any more like me…he loves to cook and to do art projects! Side note, how cute are his new cooking Duds?

Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed! Let me know how it turned out!
