      Delicious cake! I too saw this recipe in the Taste of South Magazine and just had to make it for Easter. I followed the directions as written, except that I used 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger in the icing instead of fresh. The cake was moist and dense, just as carrot cake should be and the icing was so good - the perfect sweetness! After the cake was iced, I covered it with a cake dome and stored it in the refrigerator because of the cream-cheese icing. Thanks Lainey for posting!
