I've used this one. It's ok...but certainly doesn't come close to the taste of the real thing. I used it for the one posted in my photos....It's caramel swirled over bc. If memory serves me correct, I doctored it up with the cake extender I also posted a while back. You have to adjust your spices a bit as the extender does tend to minimize them. I can't recall which brand I used. I don't have a preference and use all from Betty Crocker, DH, or generic store brands....

I love carrot cake...my favorite! I didn't know they made a mix either but I've never looked. I can't imagine making a carrot cake without using real carrots. Anyone ever doctored a mix with carrots?

Wow, guess we'd better be checking around for the carrot cake mix, sure didn't know it was available! I like them, but seldom take the time to make it, this might be a great solution! Janice

Boxed carrot cake mix is great - add the extras suggested on the box (shredded carrots, coconut, raisens, walnuts and spices) and it's super. Be sure to use the crusting cream cheese frosting - it's great for decorating. (Just search the forums - you'll find the recipe, posted by someone else.)

By the way, boxed spice cake is also excellent and doctors up great - but sometimes harder to find.

have fun!

I use Betty Crockers Carrot all of the time they are great.... if yor able to get fresh carrot juice add that in place of your water and its out of this world.... There is a company called Bolthouse Farms that is a carrot company and they make a carrot juice that is kept in the cold area if your able to get that use that I am not sure if they sell there juices out of town or not I know there carrots are sold all over the world....
