So goes another carrot cake craving, and after the success with Parvati’s Sugar Free Carrot Cake, (http://lazyblackcat.wordpress.com/2011/08/20/the-carrot-craving/) I’ve been rather confident with other carrot delicacies served at Mercato Centrale.
While posing no health benefits (i.e. sugar free or low cal) other than containing carrot – which on its own should make it the “good” cake – the next slice goes to Med Chef’s Carrot Cake. If you were expecting something more exotic, organic or gourmet, well I’ve decided to go all-out mainstream so yes, Med Chef it is.
Since it’s the first morning of 2012 and I just woke up, I’ve decided to be verbally nice.
Med Chef’s Carrot Cake will certainly be a treat to those who are anti carrot cake, since its overall flavor is cloaked in sweetness that it masks all that carrot-y taste that most people hate. There is a hint of cinnamon, but other than that, it’s sweet cake goodness that will surely make it as a mainstream favorite.
Being anti-mainstream (in short: anti-sugar + vegan), I’ve decided to pass up this bunny creation, since I would prefer frosting that is more cream cheese than sugary cream and carrot cake that is bland and carrot-y.
My brother seemed to enjoy it though, being a carrot and cake lover, though he did leave 1/6 of the slice in the fridge. Oh well, maybe he left it for the Easter bunny.
