  1. For me, the Carrot Cake at Remarkable Bean on Queen in the Beaches is the hands down winner. Really amazing icing (lots!) and cake!... Don't know if you can buy a whole cake or not, but nothing lost by asking.

    great now I am thinking about it!!

    1. Not to thread hijack, but are there any places that make the carrot on top out of marzipan instead of icing? I seem to recall this being a feature of the best carrot cakes of my yotuh.

      1. I love the one they serve at Edward Levesque's in Leslieville. They also sell whole cakes to go with advance notice. My favourite in Toronto for sure.

        1. My favourite has always been Carole's Cheesecake Company - we used it as our wedding cake. You can often find it at the Loblaw's at Queen's Quay and Jarvis (and probably lots of other places).

            Yes, Carole's Classic Carrot Cake is my favourite too. You can order one from Decadent Desserts in First Canadian Place or Brookfield Place.
