100 Favorite Dishes: No. 60, Wuollet Bakery's carrot cake
We all need a little sugar, spice, and everything nice in our lives. From a promotion at work to a flat tire during rush hour and absolutely everything in between, most days warrant a little something sweet to cap off a triumphant or trying day.
It might be easy to reach for that box of Oreos or bag of Twizzlers, but we dare you to up the ante a bit and try the classic carrot cake at Wuollet Bakery.
Fans of this delectable dessert know it can be hard to master, and they're all too familiar with some bakeries coming up dry.
But not Wuollet. Their three-layer carrot cake is so moist it nearly melts in your mouth, and though the cake is the main attraction, the subtle cream cheese frosting is perfect, topped with crunchy pecan pieces.
The next time you have something to celebrate, stew over, or simply need a little sugar and spice in your life, swing through one of six Wuollet locations and nab the carrot cake. One slice will run you under $5, and a whole cake runs just under $35.
