Ring in spring with this yummy dessert.

Carrot cake can be a bit divisive, especially for kiddos; why ruin a sweet and scrummy dessert with a wholesome root vegetable? Now that we’re grown-ups, though, it’s time to admit that carrot cake is an underrated classic. Ginger and cinnamon give it that spicy, warming flavour, while heaps of sugar and icing make it just as stick-to-your-ribs yum as a veggie-free cake. While we’re still shaking off a chill in the air, early spring is a great time to break out this festive recipe by Erin at Cloudy Kitchen. She smothers her carrot cake with pretty pastel dollops of cream cheese icing and mini chocolate eggs (both of which we're on board with).
