Do you like carrot cake?

I love carrot cake... and Christy and I had lunch at this new NY Deli called Stanley's today... and there was this refrigerated display case holding all of these desserts. Cheesecake, chocolate cake, struedel, giant cookies... and this divine, ginormous carrot cake.
Do you like carrot cake? Did your eyes get huge, your mouth start to water?
If so...
I am so glad you aren't here because there is no way I'm gonna share this puppy!!

Nice!

I never share desserts. I'll share fries. I'll share my car. I'll even share my clothes. But if you want a taste of what I'm having, you'll have to let me buy you a whole one, 'cause I ain't sharing!

I loooooove carrot cake. And let me say...if you ever visit the Milwaukee area, stop at Mason Street Grill and have a piece of Mark's Carrot Cake. It is the best carrot cake you have ever tasted.
If I could ship you a piece, I would - it's that good.

Ugh...now I want a piece. Thanks.

Here's the thing - I like carrot cake occasionally but a recent experience now has me afraid of it. See, last time I bought a slice, it had coconut in it. I'm allergic to coconut.

I've never run into coconut in my carrot cake before. Have you? Does that scrumptious bit in the photo have icky coconut?

I didn't notice any coconut... interesting...

Are you actually in NY or Indy? Because if you're in Indy and you're not gonna share, you could at least tell me where this place is. :-)

I've never met a cake I didn't like, but carrot cake is one of my favorites! Great. Now I'm craving cake.

Stanley's New York Deli. 86th and Ditch. I thought it was a little pricey overall but... worth it for this cake, good latkes, egg salad, and so on. Open for all 3 meals.

Mmmmm... I love carrot cake. But only if it doesn't have raisins in it. There's a deli in town here that has the BEST cakes, including this Banana Bavarian cake that's to die for.

Eternal Lizdom said...

I'm with you on the raisins. I didn't notice any in this cake... I'm pretty strongly opposed to raisins, too!

I love that we have been able to turn vegetables into cake! Carrot cake, zucchini bread, pumpkin pie...even I can eat my veggies and like 'em too.

I found out yesterday (Jim's birthday) that he loves carrot cake. Send him a slice? He and Garret will be at the Kennedy Space Center in Cocoa Beach later today. Does the deli deliver?

Yick. Carrot cake. Give me a nice red velvet or devil's food anyday. But I won't fight you for the carrot cake.
