(makes 3 dozen cup cakes or one 3 layer 8 inch cake)

Apart from baking, the pleasure of seeing pictures  of cakes in books is a pleasant experience . This time i stuck upon a book in the library Sweet Chic www.tribecatreats.com  and just turning the pages is a great pastime for me. The simple steps  to make it easy for the novice baker is the plus point in this book and i tried Carrot cake from this book. I am giving the actual recipe . As it yields large amount of cakes i just halved it and baked .
