Oh goodness that sounds really really yummy. Did you make it into a bunch of different layers like in the picture?

Yep! OMG , it was soooo good! :D

If you can find the darkest maple syrup available, that will help with the flavouring.

Also, grate your own carrots, don't buy the pre-shredded stuff from the stores as it's too long & stringy. ;-)

Oh man, Char, this sounds awesome.

For lazy me - do you think I could make it in a 9x13 pan and just ice the top like a cut-into-squares-cake?

:)

Next time you come up and ask what you can bring to share and eat.... THIS :lol:

Sure, I'm sure it would be just as tasty as a tray cake instead of the layers - but you will have a lot of icing left over ;-)

Yes, I will bring it up next time we get together - I promise! :)

Anytime I make too much icing, I make little sandwiches with graham crackers & icing! A nice little treat! :D

That's too bad :(

Probably won't take as long as you think it will though ;-)
