carrot cake with brown butter cream cheese frosting

$60 for 9″ cake + simple fresh flower design
contains pecans
add rum-soaked raisins: $5
make gluten-free: $15

carrot cake. such a divisive dessert, no?

folks get real specific about how they like theirs. I respect that.

here’s the scoop on mine:

do: add nuts. pecans specifically. roasted, naturally.
don’t: add crushed pineapple. this cake delivers moisture without the added texture.
do: use a split vanilla bean pod in the brown butter frosting. a difference you can taste.
don’t: forget to rum soak the raisins if adding them. gamechanger.
