Carrot cake is an all-time favorite, a total crowd-pleaser too. There’s something about the addition of shredded carrots that makes this classic feel less decadent than other cakes -- though with a rich, spiced batter and cream cheese frosting it's certainly a treat.
To get a nice log shape, lay the cake on a kitchen towel, fill it, roll it, then clip the towel's ends together with clothespins until the cake sets. We used frozen currants as a garnish, but frozen grapes work just as well. You may substitute cream cheese for the mascarpone; add two more tablespoons sugar and a half teaspoon vanilla.
