Mmmm! This Carrot Cake from the Daily Grill was surprisingly delicious. I was super skeptical since I’m not a fan of chain restaurants. Furthermore, I noticed an alarming lack of frosting on the side. In fact, the back edge of the layers was downright naked.
Normally, cream cheese frosting is the highlight of Carrot Cake! I love the icing lathered inside the layers, on the side, and with a decorative dollop on top! So even though the presentation with lightly whipped cream, sweet glazed pecans, and cinnamon dust looked lovely, the dearth of side icing had my eyebrows raised.
Then with a bite- WOW. This phenomenal Carrot Cake shocked me. The layers were moist and delicious with a perfect balance of spices and flavor. The abundant shavings of carrots and zuchinis, along with chopped walnuts and raisins, gave the dessert delightful texture without being too chunky. Since there were six layers of cake, each sandwiched by a layer of frosting, I did not miss the extra serving of it on the side. Additionally, the whipped vanilla cream that laid on top did a wonderful job of adding a cool, sweet, creaminess to the mix. Mmmmm. Finally, I loved the sweet pecans and enjoyed them with every other bite! This Carrot Cake was a unanimous home-run at our table. Kudos to the Daily Grill on their 5-Cherry rating!
