I remember my mom making the most delicious carrot cake. I am trying to work on my baking skills and with a little patience my skills are improving.  I initially made  this carrot cake for my mother-in-laws birthday, and it was a hit. Even though Easter may not be what we planned for it to be. May your house  still smell like fresh baking  with this delicious moist carrot cake. Stay safe my friends.

Happy Easter!
