Decadent carrots are mixed with cinnamon and pineapple for a delacate creation. Try it, you'll think me for it!

Note: This cake freezes beautifully. Place on foil covered baking sheet. Freeze until hard. Remove from freezer and wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil. Return to freezer. Unwrap totally and then defrost cake.
