    Carrot Cake with Buttercream Frosting recipe?

    I'm trying to find a great recipe for carrot cake with buttercream frosting for someone's birthday, (specifically requested). I can't seem to find any recipes that really fit this request. Have any tried and true recipes? Also, can buttercream frosting be used on any carrot cake or does it have to be made with a specific one?

    as long as you have a good recipe for carrot cake, i doubt it matters what recipe you use for buttercream frosting..... usually carrot cake has a cream cheese frosting but you could replace it, dont think its a big deal at all.

    Traditionally carrot cakes have cream cheese frosting but I see no reason you can't use any buttercream frosting on any carrot cake.
