If I were to make a commercial for this carrot cake it would feature a family in middle America going “What’s for dessert?” and then the mom, with perfectly coifed hair and dishtowels in her hands says “Carrot cake” and then the kids with bowl haircuts say “Carrot cake again?” and put their face in their hands. The husband puffs on his pipe and buries his face in the newspaper, completely uninterested. But the mom’s got a mischievous look in her eye; she brings the carrot cake out and suddenly there is a calypso band in the dining room and the kids start dancing, heck even grandma joins in the dance. What I am saying is that this is not your average carrot cake. Feel free to replace the macadamia nuts with their more affordable cousins, walnuts.
