Carrot Cake for Peabody Housewarming Party

So... I'm not a very comenting person you know... so Peabody probably don't know me, but.. when I so in her blog (that i visit often) that she was giving a party to celebrate her new home i just had to "go". It was so simple... just to make a dish and take it to the party...
I got thinking on what to do... So... i decided for something that was conforting, after all that's all someone can ask in a new home, i've been eating this cake for my intere life, my mom has always baked it and i always loved.... Carrot Cake, just that, simple, delicius and reconforting... all that can be asked to fell in a new house.... to be warm and cozzy... so that we can call it a home....
It's not something fanncy but comes from the heart, with all the best wishes for your new home...
That your home be filled with love and warm, i'm sure that your new kitchen will give us only great things...
Ohhh... made two variations... one with the basic chocolate frosting and a mini, a cupcake with cream cheese frosting... i honestly prefer the chocolate one, not because is chocolate but because it reminds me of when a was young... ok... i'm not an old person i know - i'm only 19 - but when i was relly young...
