My go-to adds flaked coconut, chopped candied ginger, crushed pineapple and chopped macadamia nuts to the cake batter, and cream of coconut to the frosting.

Americans do love their cakes with lots of sweet icing, but it is optional.

i guess that may be true generally speaking but i think the tang of the cream cheese frosting on a classic carrot cake is classic because it rules that way. also helps retain moisture. and obviously if you are making it you are free to control sweetness to a certain degree. xpost
