Carrot Cake: Who has a good one to buy?

It's my mother's 80th birthday and her favorite is carrot cake.

I've tried Wuollet's, and have been extremely disappointed. [One little carrot on a cake? Come on! And no orange frosting to add more? Come on!]

I live in Mpls. but am happy to drive to suburbs / exurbs to get a great cake.

Who makes one?!

  1. Cafe Latté has good carrot cake.

    1. I've liked the French Meadow version. I'd also check out Yum! Bakery. I've never tried their carrot cake, but their cakes, in general, are delicious.

      1. Cossetta's has a pretty darn good carrot cake, if you like the dense variety. The frosting is excellent. Can't remember how many little orange carrots they decorate it with, though.

          Carrot cake is dense and moist by definition. If you get one that isn't dense, it is made wrong!

        2. Thanks, everyone. Don't know why I didn't think of Cafe Latte. Will try that and Cossetta's to see which I like better.

            It may be too late, but I thought Cafe Latte's was only ok - also, they don't always have it. (In fact, they rarely do.)

              Just tried a piece. Agreed: Disappointing. Had to laugh about it being $5.75.

          2. Shish (which is apparently Buttercreams).
