I like carrots, but, really, the only time I enjoy grating them is when it’s for carrot cake. It’s one of my favorite cakes, and here in the Dickson home, we’re big fans of cream cheese frosting.
For Adrienne’s birthday, I thought it’d be a nice surprise to bake one for her (I’ve heard tell she’s a fan). It was my first time making a layer cake - usually I’ll do cupcakes or a single layer cake that barely makes it out of the oven before I slather it in frosting and shove into my mouth like you’ve never
But, all midnight noshing aside, I was excited to make this as a round layer. I started small, with just two layers.

Let’s get layered ohh you dirty
And then we ate it and delicious cake was in my tummy. And I was so happy.
