Carrot Cake?  Why write about number two? 

C’mon – tell me which one you’d rather have.



Do you want the lusciously smooth dark chocolate cake with the melty buttercream and dark chocolate icing, or would you rather have stubbly carrots and nuts with the possibility of (shudder) pineapple thrown into it?

The last time I tried carrot cake, the first bite ended up inside a napkin.  It took a cup of coffee and a slice of chocolate pie to get rid of the taste. 

I’ve had good carrot cakes made with quality ingredients, but nothing screams “comfort food” like chocolate.
