classic carrot cake

Untitled Carrot cake has been my cake of choice since my first birthday party, where my parents let me eat a giant piece and smear the icing all over my face.

With this recipe, the cake itself is not overly sweet but the cream cheese icing adds the necessary amount of decadence. While I'm used to (and almost expect) cakes to fail (exhibit A), this recipe is guaranteed tragedy-free. The cake slipped out of the pan effortlessly and and we iced it the next morning, just in time for breakfast. Perfect.
