It's traditional, just like coconut pecan frosting on German Chocolate cake.

Bet you haven't had this question before... Hi, kids! I want to bake a [B]carrot cake.[/B] It is standard-issue except for the fact that it's half honey and half sugar. But it says to bake it in a loaf pan. [B] I want to bake it in a shallow 9 X 9 inch cooking dish.[/B] I don't want slices, I want nice square pieces. Is this kind of switch doable without burning or some other problem? Expert bakers, come on down. :lol::lol::lol: Also, I don't have any cream cheese on hand for the icing. Do you think yogurt would work, maybe if I strained some of the whey out? 3 stars 1 reviews
