Okay, first: sorry for any typos, because I went to a brunch @ noon where the only vegan thing was mimosas and I am drunk as Hell ...

But I just found out that my new roommate's bday is tomorrow & he wants carrot cake. So, I need to make the best forking carrot cake of all time. I have Isa's books, 500 vegan recipes, Vegan Celebrations, and that book with the vegan tiramisu that I am too drunk to remember right now. I don't even know how many of those have carrot cake recipes. Anyway, if you have an awesome one, PLEASE link/PM/tell me about it. Because it needs to be TOTALLY awesome, since this roommate IS NOT vegan and whatever I make will be for his bday and must be knee-knocking terrific.

So, HELPSIES! PLEASE! I <3 U ALL!

Thirded! I made it for my birthday last year and I think my boyfriend and I ate the whole thing (over several days of course). I put cream cheese frosting on it because that's half the reason I like carrot cake.

If you have soy free margarine, the coconut icing in VWAV goes brilliantly with the cake and looks easier than what I found when I googled "soy free vegan cream cheese frosting."

Here's what I found:

This is by far my favourite - I had it for my birthday this year. I usually leave out the crystallized ginger and replace it with extra coconut. I also frost it with a double batch of the coconut frosting (also in vwav). So good!!!

I made the VwaV one! It looks very sad, because I made it, but hopefully it'll taste alright...

The one in VWAV seems incredible, but I've never made it. A simple and basic one, but also very very tasty, is the one in VCTOTW.

This.

My non-vegan family still talks about this cake almost every time they talk to me and they want me to make it again next year.

I agree, VWaV one is the GREATEST! I made it for my dad's 50th birthday (carrot cake is his favourite), and my whole non-vegan family adored it. My aunty even said it was the best cake she'd ever tasted.
