Pineapple Carrot Cake-Rum Cream Cheese Frosting

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


Love this carrot cake, It's a family from scratch recipe, But I made a few interesting twists. I really enjoy making this with the family. They can make there own carrot decorations which makes this a very rusty unique fun dessert.
Not everybody likes raisons so I told the Grandchildren that the Easter bunny stole the raisons!! ;) Also by them making there own carrot decorations they can help put on and have there own special piece.
Just a fun, yum cake!!!
