Today is National Carrot Cake Day!

Today is National Carrot Cake Day and this is a recipe from one of my novels. It may look like it is time consuming, but I can guarantee it is worth the time. As you can see in my picture there is a thick layer of carrot cake topped with a cheese cake. This takes the cream cheese frosting idea up a notch. A heavy and heavenly dessert. Let me know if you make it. Jacqueline Gillam Fairchild--author: Estate of Mind. Her Majesty's English Tea Room
