Icing a Carrot Cake
Traditionally, carrot cakes are iced with sour cream frosting, but it's also lovely with a simple glaze. Use a fork to mix 4 tablespoons organic butter with ½ cup organic confectioners' sugar and 2 teaspoons organic vanilla extract. You'll have the cool sweetness of the icing without oversweetening the cake.
