Best Carrot Cake

Where can I buy the best carrot cake in the city? Is the Two Little Red Hens' one amazing?

  1. I've only had Two Little Red Hens' carrot cake cupcake, but if that's any indication, they make an outstanding carrot cake

    1. if you want wholesale-ish, try the carrot cake at Umanoff and Parsons; available at fairway I think, but I usually go right to the bakery on Greenwich street and Watts, in Tribeca. incredibly rich and moist, love their carrot cake (and their other stuff as well; tarts are a standout, the chocolate mud cake is too intense, but if you're into it, it's excellent).

      1. My friend always buys the carrot cake from Fresh Direct and brings it to our picnics in the park. I'm not a huge carrot cake fan, but this one is really good and the icing is lovely without being overwhelming.

          My wife bought this carrot cake on Friday. It was too dry for my taste, but the icing was good. I have to think there is better in Manhattan.

        2. Does anyone know if Two Little Red Hen's carrot cake is better than BlackHound's?
