24 Carrot Cake

This is the MOST EXPENSIVE CAKE IN THE WORLD! Well ok, not really, but my 24 Carrot Cake is definitely the most expensive LOOKING cake and it tastes like a million bucks, so I count that as close. (A food friend for the new gold MacBook Pro…)

FUN FACT: There are actually 24 baby carrots used in the cake recipe, so the title is completely legit.

Ok, let’s get fancy everyone!
