Carrot cakes have been around since, well since the beginning of the carrot!
They are among one of the perfect ways to fool your kids into eating carrots.  My mom loved to
bake carrot cakes, they were moist, easy to take to family reunitons, tasted gooey and sweet
and everyone loved them.

My mom use to ice the tops of her carrot cakes with this sweet, thick, white icing.  I think I liked
the icing the best.  Must have been loaded with sugar, because I felt wonderful afterwards.

Thanks mom, for baking such great cakes.

I take these recipes from handwritten recipe cards, journals, or off of handwritten pieces of
paper.  I find them in journals, recipe boxes, and once in an old envelope atop a stove in a flea
market.  Enjoy. From the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's.
