Around this time of year, we’re looking forward to spring—warmer temperatures, local markets and fresh veggies…like carrots! Whoever decided that National Carrot Cake Day should be February 3 must have been thinking along those same lines.

For the celebratory day tomorrow, we’re highlighting six places in Huntsville where you can get carrot cake (in both classic and unusual forms!).

1. Mason Dixon Bakery & Bistro

Mason Dixon’s gluten-free cakes have become well-known within the Huntsville community for a reason—they’re both delicious and accommodating to people’s dietary needs.

One of their staple cakes is the carrot cake, with three layers of warmly-spiced cake with cream cheese frosting enveloping it.

2. Baby Bite Bake Shop

Baby Bite Bake Shop’s cute little cakes are perfect for when you just want a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth. Their carrot cake bites are covered in cream cheese icing and topped with crushed pecans.

3. Regale Cupcakery

Regale Cupcakery is known for their unique and fun flavor combos in both their cupcakes and coffee. One of their staple flavors is the Tomato Soup cupcake—a carrot cake base with white chocolate buttercream and a pinch of cinnamon on top. And yes, they do put tomato soup in it.

4. Canadian Bakin

Leave it to the geniuses at Canadian Bakin to put all the flavors of carrot cake into a coffee. The Horse Girl Cold Brew features carrot cake syrup (made in house, of course) and a cream cheese cold foam. It’s a limited-edition find that made its appearance again last April, and we’re hoping they bring it back this year.

5. JJ’s Treats
