Thank you for all the instastory love on the Carrot Cake I made!
Here’s the back story: For some reason, Disney’s carrot cake in Anaheim resonated with me when I visited for the first time at age 34. Somehow, I scored the recipe and made it for my Italian family, which you can imagine, were ambivalent to it so I never made it again. (P.S. we don’t eat holiday ham either for all of yesterday’s poll voters). Long story short, fast forward to a few weeks ago where I was craving carrot cake in Jamaica. Never actually scoring a piece (the resort didn’t make it that week, the restaurant had run out and refunded me, etc.), I was adamant on making it when I got back.
Originally meant as Thanksgiving dessert, I’m glad to have baked for new homeowner friends instead.
And everyone loved it, including my parents! When I told them I made it so many years ago, they had no recollection, but I’m glad this carrot cake really made everyone smile today the way it did me 7 years ago. 😌. #westchester #poundridge #914 #cake #westchestereats #dessert #dessertporn #carrotcake #thanksgiving #housewarming #homemadeisbest #baking #foodgasm #instagood #feedfeed #f52grams #disney
