Zucchini Carrot Cake

Last weekend, I went to a wedding which was beautiful!  My friend Minda, who lived here for a few months, married Dan and the wedding was authentically them.  The food was delicious, and even more delicious were the cakes.  That’s right.  Cakes.  Each table had its own cake and then guests were able to mingle around and find other cakes, the varieties of which I loved — White Chocolate, Chocolate with Salted Caramel, Lemon with Raspberry Filling, etc.

As we were talking, my friend Kara and I both suggested we made the best carrot cake and I decided to proceed with making mine — also because we’re in the season of the zucchini, and my carrot cake calls for a little zucchini in it.
