I was craving some carrot cake, but I didn’t want to bake a huge multi-tiered cake for our drive out to Palm Springs for the weekend. Imagine that in the trunk on a 3 hour car ride! Being a family with food allergies, I cook and bake everything. We always stay at a hotel with a kitchen, when available, or stow our food in the hotel kitchen (yep, lots of planning). So I thought a simple carrot cake, still in it’s pan, and frosting on the side should be just fine. And it was the perfect traveler. I don’t know if I can say that about my kids, well I guess they were for 2 out of the 3 hour car ride.
