Why Carrot Cake is the Perfect Easter Dessert

Enjoy a Slice of Cake This Easter

Spring is a time of new beginnings, and Easter is the perfect time to celebrate the new time of year. The Easter Bunny, egg hunts, and gift baskets all share the same excitement and discovery of the new season. This April, enjoy a festive dessert that perfectly matches the Easter spirit.

Carrot Cake is an iconic spice cake featuring real carrots and whipped cream cheese frosting. Not only are carrots associated with Easter, but the cake itself is filled with springtime flavors. Carrots, eggs, walnuts, and vegetables are all be found inside a slice of the iconic brown and orange cake.

The caramelized brown sugar balances the spicy and rich flavors of cinnamon, vegetables, and nutmeg. Decorate the cake with carrots made from orange and green frosting, and delight friends and family during any Easter gathering.

Is Carrot Cake Healthy?

The vegetables and fruit in carrot cake impact the cake’s nutritional value. A slice of carrot cake provides a wealth of potassium, antioxidants, and vitamins to help prevent sickness.

Unfortunately, these benefits come with drawbacks. A slice of carrot cake often has more than 300 calories and is high in sugar. While carrot cake can’t necessarily be qualified as healthy, it is a delicious treat with some essential nutritional benefits.

How Long Does Carrot Cake Last?

After Easter, there is a good chance there will be carrot cake left. The best way to keep a cut iced cake fresh is to wrap it in plastic to store in a refrigerator. Properly stored cake can last up to one week before expiring.

For those eager to try a spring dessert without it spoiling, carrot cake can be purchased by the slice at the Dilettante Mocha Café.
