Carrot Patch CakeJust in time for Easter, here’s a recipe for an adorable carrot cake. I created it to look like a raised vegetable garden with gumdrop carrot tops poking above the dirt. I hope you have as much fun making it as you do eating it!

Carrot Patch Cake

Serves 8

  • 1 carrot cake loaf (try this recipe), frosted on top and sides
  • 40 graham sticks
  • 10 fudge sandwich cookies
  • 15 orange gumdrops
  • Green sour straws
  1. Place the graham sticks horizontally to cover each side of the cake. Use 12 graham sticks for each long side and 6 graham sticks for each short side. Place the remaining 4 graham sticks vertically on the corners of the cake.
  2. In a food processor, process the fudge sandwich cookies until you get fine crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs on top of the cake.
  3. Using sharp kitchen shears, cut off the tops of the gumdrops to expose the sticky inside. Cut the green sour straws into 15 short pieces (about, oh, 3/4 inch), and then make 4 or 5 vertical snips on one end of each piece. In other words, one end should be intact and the other end should fray out like the end of an old rope. Help it fray even more by bending the strips.
  4. Stick the green sour straw pieces on the sticky tops of the gumdrops. Press each piece firmly into the gumdrop to make sure it sticks well.
  5. Place the “carrots” in rows on top of the cake.
  6. Admire how cute it is.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
