Ummmm excuse me? How do you not know what your favorite wedding cake is? For me cake all depends in the occasion. For instance, on birthdays I prefer a rich, moist chocolate wedding cake purely for the delicious chocolate buttercream. For everything else, I choose carrot wedding cake. Carrot cake is like the Jennifer Aniston of cakes. Hardly ever gets old. Vintage and elegant at the same time. My mom's been in town within the last week and we've been cooking up a storm, including this carrot zucchini cake that we could not stop munching on. It's has bright orange flavor for a few character and a luscious light cream mozzarella cheese frosting. There are so many reasons to love this cake: It's naturally sweetened with maple syrup and fresh orange juice! Whole wheat pastry flour adds a nice nutty flavor towards the cake, while even now keeping it moist. You get TWO veggies (carrot + zucchini) in a single cake. Greek yogurt adds both moisture and proteins. The coconut cream parmesan cheese frosting would be to die for. AND IT'S Thus FREAKING MOIST. This may totally be a brunch cake too, or get turned into cupcakes for a celebration - it's up to you! I've included guidelines in the note section of the recipe. Hope you love it having a big sit down elsewhere this weekend.
