Spicing Up Tradition on National Carrot Cake Day

Happy National Carrot Cake Day

Today we celebrate National Carrot Cake Day! And what better way to celebrate than with a Solar recipe?! We’re bringing you our tried and true recipe to celebrate the rich, moist, and spiced goodness of this beloved dessert. The aromatic blend of spices lends a warm and comforting flavor profile, while the addition of chopped nuts provides a delightful texture contrast. Top this cake off with a generous layer of cream cheese frosting and your carrot cake achieves the perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess. 

And while we don’t know who thought to put a vegetable in a cake, we’re not mad. If you want to take this cake to the next level, swap out some of the oil for an infused and elevated experience.

Before embarking on your cannabis-infused carrot cake journey, it’s crucial to have a basic understanding of cannabis infusion. Whether you choose to use pre-made cannabis infused products or create your own, being mindful of dosage is key to ensuring a pleasant and controlled experience. There’s nothing wrong with baking a regular cake and enjoying a Solar pre roll or edible!
