Welcome to the Cake Decorators Q&A
Carrot cake recipe problem.
I used Mrs Jones recipe for carrot cake but it wasn't sweet at all and didn't taste very nice. Can you help please?
Mrs Jones' recipe is perfectly balanced using light brown sugar, this may be the reason why it doesn't taste quite as sweet. It can be replaced with normal caster sugar. Refined sugar tastes sweeter than the caramel tasting light brown.
This is just a suggestion to try. Alternatively, contact Mrs Jones at her own site and ask for advice on her recipe. She'll be more than delighted to help. Here is her contact: https://mrsjonescakes.co.uk/
