    Hey Myra! This cake looks scrumptious! I really like the idea of cutting corners and saving time sometimes especially if it doesn't take away from the overall effect of the recipe. Great Job! I wish I had a piece right now! Alas, I digress.

    Hey Andra,

    I love grapes, but am not crazy about raisins, for some reason.

      This sounds yummy! I'm definitely going to try this...and I may have to add some golden raisins to the mix, because I LOVE raisins in my carrot cake. Thanks for the idea of coconut in the mix. Sounds amazing.
