Carrot Cake as Wedding Cake
A Carrot Cake Wedding Cake
I was wondering if its possible to have a 4 tier carrot cake as a wedding cake.
The answer is Oh yes!!! It is my all time favorite recipe for a wedding cake. I make it often for brides. All of the carrot recipes on this website work well for a 4 tiers.
The secret, especially if it is heavy, is the internal structure, whether it be wooden dowels or metal Cake Stackers. The doweling keeps each tier from weighing down on the tier below.
You may want to check the Stackers out. They are amazing. I use them now for perfectly centered and straight tiers and safe delivery too.
See my review of these wedding cake supports.
The very best of the carrot recipes is this one here. It has pineapple, coconut, walnuts and pureed carrots. I have used this one exclusively, for over 25 years now and everyone who tries it says "it's amazing" including folks who say they don't like carrot cake.
There is a link to another recipe from Frog Commissary on the main page that is a great choice. The pecan cream filling makes this one unique. It does call for raisins, but you can omit them if you don't like them. I personally don't. In some ways this one is much like the very best recipe above as it has coconut and pineapple included.
Here is one that a reader submitted that is classic with grated carrots. She claims it is the best ever Maybe it is, I have not baked it as of yet. If you do try it please let us know what you think.
And another classic original carrot recipe with grated carrots.
I don't see any reason for you not to use the carrot, as I have been doing them for years without an issue.
