I love carrot cake and would consider the miles to taste this stellar version at Red Cedar Grill. It looks really dense and rich. Carrots have a sweetness and fit very well in desserts. I would probably start with dessert at Red Cedar because that menu sounds like I wouldn't be able to finish both and dessert is more important!


Fly Girl-Well now, I knew there was something I really liked about you! You appreciate the joys of carrot cake.
I've had people tell me in the sternest of tones that "carrot" and "cake" don't belong in the same sentence, let alone together in a dessert. What do they know, eh?

I do enjoy a meal at the Red Cedar, and I often just order the cake to take home. By the time we make the 1-1/2 hour ride home, we're ready for dessert..so we'll eat half of then and eat the rest of it the next evening. Four pieces...no problem.
Tim likes the pot roast and the meatloaf. I like their mac 'n' cheese, gumbo and the garlic platter.


I am chocolate person, but I do love carrot cake as well.

There is so much frosting on that cake, which I think is the best part. I am not much of a cake person and am not too much into frosting, but carrot cakes know how to do it.

Now I am hungry.


I made a trip today because of your article, and i agree....it is some of the best!! The only ones that compete are Janet's in Bloomington IL, and the recipe used by newly opened Ravens Club (from somewhere in Dexter originally). My only complaint is that there is too much icing. Delicious!!!! Thanks for the write-up recommendation!

Evan-Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad the carrot cake lived up to my billing with you. I'm thinking we may be out that way this weekend, and it seems like a good time to stop by and pick up a slab o' cake again!
