Jenny’s Famous Carrot Cake

I ate a piece of my sister’s carrot cake the other night and was reminded why like it so much. I consciously made the decision to eat the biggest piece and not worry about my pants being tight the rest of the week. It is after all my birthday week. Isaac makes fun of me because I declared it my birthday week instead of just celebrating one day.  I figure since I almost didn’t make it to thirty, I should go all out and celebrate the whole week long. Monday I had dinner with my family and we ate this carrot cake. The middle is moist and the perfect combination of sweet and subtle spice. The frosting is the smoothest cream cheese frosting you have ever tasted. I would say for Mother’s Day you should surprise your mom with flowers and a card, but I am pretty sure she would love you more if you made this cake for her!

Words don't do this cake justice-you must try it for yourself!

Words don’t do this cake justice-you must try it for yourself! My sister used 2 9 inch cake pans for this cake and it works fine too if you don’t have three pans.
