It’s Sunday again, which means dessert time! As a combination of Fathers’ Day and birthday celebrations, a light carrot cake is this week’s featured dessert! (per my parents’ requests) This gorgeous carrot layer cake is filled and topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting; the cake itself has a tropical hint of pineapple and coconut, making the cake super moist and extra delicious! Whip up this surprisingly simple recipe for a fantastic dessert and to wish your dad a “Happy Fathers’ Day”!!! Enjoy!
Recipe: Carrot Cake
**NOTE: I did not add the cinnamon to the frosting; I wanted an old-fashioned, vanilla cream cheese taste instead.

Wow, very nice! You have great masking and piping skills — it makes this cake look totally professional. I bet your dad was thrilled! :)
It was moist and light. The touch of Pineapple and coconut was the perfect combination!
Oh my gosh. Carrot cake is my absolute favorite desert. Mmmm.
It’s my mom’s favorite too! :)

Brad time with a daughter is still impnrtaot my daughter is your age 38. Time I spend with her is always very rewarding as I make up for the times I didn’t when she was young and I was building a business. Better late than never!Wayne
What a beautiful cake!
Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rhtear sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
