First, my deepest apologies to Jessica of Domestic Deep Thought of the Day who chose Coffee Ice Cream Tart this week in our TWD group. I can only say ice cream does not like ME. I am sure this tart is fabulous as are all of Dorie's creations. I decided in order to keep baking along with the group, I would do a rewind of a cake that was chosen before I got into the group. Big Bill's Carrot Cake. Be SURE to hop over to Jessica's blog and check out the coffee ice cream tart by clicking the link above.
This week my sweet husband celebrates his birthday (number 41 again and again and again - he is stuck on that number for some reason) and since he loves carrot cake it was the perfect choice. I did make it in a 9x13 pan instead of the traditional layers.
Then I toasted some coconut to put on top. Here is the finished product! Delicious.
