You can add 1/2 cup of raisins in step 5 if you like raisins.
To make carrot decorations: most stores sell tubes of green and orange icing, as well as pastry tips that fit right on the tube.

This carrot cake is so moist and flavorful, with tiny bits of real fresh carrots that no box of cake mix can ever even hope to come close to replicating. Just don't let a rabbit anywhere near it!
