Since publishing this recipe in the October 2008 Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine, we’ve heard great feedback from readers who've made the cake for birthdays and to share with neighbors. With its bounty of carrots and crown of maple-tinged cream cheese frosting, we think it would be a fitting finish to your Easter dinner, too. If you don't want to do a layer cake, the batter fits nicely in a 9-by-13 pan. Be certain to grease your pans, either way you go.
