What better way to celebrate National Carrot Cake Day than is by enjoying the taste of Carrot cakes with your family and friends. Here at Stag Bakeries, we make some delicious Carrot cupcakes with sweet creamy cheese topping and decorated with a chocolate carrot and sold local shops around Lewis and Harris.
Through times in history when access to sugar was non-existent or very hard to come by, people have used sweet vegetables to make their desserts sweet. This has been as recent as during World War II. During this difficult time, the government of Britain needed to ration food and luxury items to their population. During the war, the Ministry of Food in Britain encouraged people to try many different recipes that used carrots as a sweetener. They suggested carrot cakes, carrot puddings, and carrot filled pies! It is also something to note that carrot sweetened confections are healthier for you. So be creative, and enjoy a cake or two in the meantime!
