Simply Pure Carrot Cake and POM Winners

By Zesty Cook

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the extended vacation if you took part in Independence Day.  Before we begin with what I coin as a “Killer Carrot cake” with cream cheese icing I want to announce the two winners of the POM Giveaway.

I think POM is on of the most wonderful products to come out! Who doesn?t love pure and natural foods?! Never tried the juice, but I love the idea!

Thanks!

I love pomegranate juice :D

It?s a great mixer for alcohol. Hahaa.

Now on to the carrot cake.  This was another extension of my great baking afternoon last Wednesday which so far has included chocolate cream cheese cupcakes and rhubarb cupcakes.  With today’s recipe, I think we went overboard and hit a Grand Slam.  This cake is simply amazing.  And not to under estimate the amazing baking skills of my sister in law - it is quite easy to make!

ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: Be sure to let the cake cool completely before both icing and cutting.  If you are like me you will love this cake chilled but some people swear by eating it warmed through in the microwave.
