I debated long and hard about awarding the Golden Cherry to this carrot cake cupcake. It's such a prestigious honor (heh ;). I can't just dole it out willy-nilly to any absurdly delicious treat that I consume.
That said, I've tasted my share of carrot cakes and the cupcake from The Farm of Beverly Hills (with now two other locations in LA) has consistently made me melt into a puddle of joy. It's truly a phenomenal cup of carrot cake. With chunky walnut bits, shaved carrots, what looks to be shaved zucchini bits, delicious spices and the perfect cream-cheese frosting, I can't not give this treat the ultimate rating.
Don't let the sad little carrot design on the icing fool you, this is a Golden Cherry treasure!
