Carrot Cake Review in San Luis County

May 17, 2012 | By More

The May 17th, 2012 Birthday adventure included a Carrot Cake Review.

Carrot Cake Review
Carrot cake was purchased from Taco Temple in Morro Bay, Costco in San Luis Obispo, Splash Cafe in San Luis Obispo, Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, and Giuseppes Express in Pismo Beach, CA.  The prices ranged from $5.50 to to$8.95 per slice.

Who has the best carrot cake?  Each one had a unique taste and texture.  So it depends on what your preferences are.

Price:  Costco had the best price – 6 cupcakes for $6.99.  Taco Temple had the most weight for $6

Weight:  Taco Temple had the heaviest piece at almost 2 pounds– enough cake for several people

Texture:  Madonna Inn had a great texture.  All the cake we tried was moist

Frosting:  Varied with different kinds of cream cheese frosting, with different nuts

Nuts:  Nut lovers would like the pistachios and walnuts in the Guiseppe’s Carrot Cake

What the taste testers discovered:  A little carrot cake goes a LONG way!
