This recipe was inspired by my daughter's friends birthday party, where carrot cake was being served. I always want to make safe, and often similar, treats for her. I looked at a recipe for Carrot Cake from Living Without Recipe but needed to change several things to make it safe for us. It can easily be made gluten, dairy, soy, egg and corn free and vegan, so it is pretty allergy friendly.
The orange icing was simply inspired by me looking around the kitchen and wondering what might punch the flavor for the icing up a bit. —MaggieD
