Homemade Carrot Cake


I made this cake for my mama's birthday yesterday. She's been talking about carrot cake for awhile so I decided to attempt to make one from scratch. I'm not a big fan of this kind of cake, but it turned out really well (it's not my favorite, but I'll still eat it!). I made it into 2 rounds and frosted it with a maple cream cheese frosting. I tinted part of it orange and green and decorated the top. Please excuse the soggy carrots - the frosting was really soft even after adding a ton of extra powdered sugar. I liked the frosting :)
These are the 2 recipes I used:
