Carrot Cake

Any favorites on where to get a great piece of carrot cake? I'm not into cupcakes, so that rules out the thousands of carrot cake cupcakes I find everywhere. I've never tried the one at Modern Pastry because I've been turned off by the iced carrot and from looks, I prefer I higher cake to frosting ratio. My favorite carrot cake is from The Palm, but I'd like to try other ones. I've had the one at Mike's and was not impressed.

  1. Rosie's Bakery in Chestnut Hill makes what most people think of as a very good carrot cake.

    1. Flour makes a decent carrot cake. Just had a piece last week.

      1. re: bear

        I second Flour. Though I think their carrot cake is MUCH better than "decent". I brought a whole carrot cake to Easter Sunday once and everyone thought they had died and gone to heaven.

      2. Quebrada Bakery in Wellesley and Somerville (or is it Camridge??) makes an excellent carrot cake.

        1. Tried the carrot cake at Sel De La Terre the other night, in lieu of frosting they topped it with a toasted coconut & something ice cream. Utterly delicious.

          1. Try Konditor Meister. It's my favorite one. Even had it at my wedding. :)
