Watch Claire as she demonstrates how to achieve even, light layers and then assemble them into a cake that’s equal parts, impressive, satisfying, and delicious. Remember, as Julia Child said: “A party without cake is just a meeting!”

    I just want to sample all of your desserts without having to cook them. 🤤 Carrot cake was my favorite as a child and I would have it as my birthday cake every year. Also, I love how descriptive you are with your words. Really enjoying these videos!

  2. AllTimeIva says:

    Hello! Excited to try this recipe out!😋 But buttermilk is not readily available where im from, are there alternatives (like sour cream)? Or is it better to just make my own using vinegar and milk? (Im worried it will change the taste) ALSO can i add more spices like chinese 5 spice and nutmeg or will it be too much? Thanks!!

    Hey, Claire. Big fan going back to your Dorito-making days and before. Your job as a YouTube cook is to inspire us to make your recipe and you’ve accomplished your mission with me! I’m off to buy your book and try the recipe. Thanks and keep up the good work!

  4. Caitlin says:

    Hey Claire et al! I know you've got to make the recipes as written in your book, but I know ZERO people who own stand mixers. If you could highlight when alternatives are possible (like in this video) that would be so great. Maybe it won't be as good, but I like real cake a lot more than hypothetical cake, anyday.

  5. John Ross Fischer says:

    I like carrot cake but with vanilla frosting. I know this may disappoint you but for some reason, I can't stand the taste of cream cheese frosting. Are there any other types of frosting that are typical with carrot cake that do not incorporate cream cheese?
