    Ok, FIRST, HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet friend! SO dang sorry I”m a day late, I wish I had known it was your birthday. I”m actually rotten at remembering birthdays anyways though, lol. No better post to do on a birthday than cake, of course! Love, love carrot cake and so glad you went with good old oat flour and tapioca starch. I literally laughed out loud at you describing all of your failed trials and hating cake. I went through this EXACTLY when I was creating my chocolate chip cake for Cake in a Crate and that is hilarious because I, too, ended up at the oat flour and tapioca starch that ultimately was the winner. It is a magical combo for sure! I love almond flour but it can make things so mushy and too wet/dense when veggies are involved, just eww, so it”s best you didn”t go that route. Plus, I”m actually enjoyed baking with other flours lately instead of almond. Almond is just so dang finicky and like you said, expensive! SO, this cake, gorgeous, fluffy and that cream cheese frosting literally looks like pure heaven! I”m so touched that my Strawberry Cream Cheese recipe inspired your frosting, thanks girl for the shout out. I”m like you, love the corner piecesmore frosting and sometimes more crisp/better texture as well. This whole cake looks divine and I can just smell it from here! Definitely worth all the trials!

      Hi Devil and thanks for the birthday wishes. I have a feeling you are aiming this comment to my daughter Kelyana. I will certainly pass it on to her. My birthday is tomorrow, the 9th but her’s is April 28th. I too love cake and the one she was making with the tapioca flour and all was for my husband since he is now diabetic. I love looking at her cakes because she is so creative! Just wish I could eat them too 🙂
