Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

Carrot cake is my all time favourite cake beside butter cake. After i tried the Quay Po Cook's carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, i totally fall in love with this cake, a perfect carrot cake recipe. Earlier i did not serve carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, after i tried with cream cheese, I know i will not miss to prepare cream cheese frosting whenever i bake a carrot cake next time, they are the best combo! Last weekend, i brought this cake to a "gang dinner" at a Korean BBQ restaurant and all my girl friends were very impressed with this cake.
