The Best Carrot Cake In Columbus

If I had to choose a favorite cake, it wouldn’t even really be a question.

It’s one of the things in this world I’m absolutely certain about, you know, one of those opinions that never change, no matter how old you get or how many people try to change your mind.

Just in case you haven’t figured it out yet, my answer is Carrot Cake.

Carrot Cake is, in my humble and completely unqualified opinion, the best cake that ever caked. It’s spicy, it’s sweet, it’s everything, it’s…

If you’re planning on ordering a slice of 24K Carrot Cake for dessert at Cap City, make sure you plan the rest of your meal accordingly. This cake is huge, flavorful, and delicious. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

We couldn’t make a list about carrot cake and not include Sweet Carrot. At the organic restaurant, you can get your carrot fix with a slice of cake a carrot cake pop. Their cake is served all year long and is the perfect way to end your meal.

Mitchell’s Ocean Club

I’ve got four words for you: Ten. Layer. Carrot. Cake. You heard me. This giant, mega slice of cake is ten layers of carrot cake and cream cheese icing. There’s no other cake I’d rather have ten layers of.

The carrot cake bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes is everything that is good in the world. It’s light and airy all while being moist and filling. I don’t understand it either, but I’m telling you, it’s good. You can get it in various size, from individual bundtlettes to a full, 10-inch bundt cake.

The fanciest carrot cake awaits you at Mozart’s Cafe. You can grab a whole cake to take home from the cafe, which means that you’ll have some to share (maybe, if you aren’t tempted to keep it all to yourself). Mozart’s follows a traditional carrot cake recipe, baked with raisins and topped with cream cheese icing and ground almonds. Oh, I almost forgot the marzipan carrots on top! Pure joy.
