Hi all - I am looking for an awesome carrot cake recipe for my boyfriend's birthday. It can't have nuts (he's allergic). I know I can (duh) leave out nuts but I am worried the cake might be blah otherwise.
He likes raisins in it, and doesn't like pineapple or coconut in baked goods (he's weird). I was thinking of adding some orange zest in the cake, maybe, depending on what else is in there.
I plan on making a cream cheese frosting, maybe with some orange extract if I use zest in the cake.
It will be decorated like Sponge Bob, since my boyfriend is 26 going on 7, not 27.
Thanks in advance!
