Blue Ribbon Carrot Cake

Main Recipe


the best carrot cake ever, this cake has a rich buttermilk caramel glaze poured over the warm cake before icing with the cream cheese frosting. this recipe came from "culinary crafts", a salt lake city based catering company, but i have tweaked this recipe a little to suit my taste. * cooks note: i use only real butter, and real vanilla. carrots should be finely grated. the amount of powdered sugar in the cream cheese frosting depends on how sweet you like your frosting. . . i prefer a less sweet cream cheese frosting that tastes more like cheesecake..
