Eye Nosh: What's Up Doc? Carrot Cake Day!

We weren't kidding yesterday when we said there was a day for pretty much any foodstuff you can conjure, and, in that spirit, break out the bunny ears, because today happens to be National Carrot Cake Day.

As big fans ourselves of the veggie-flavored cake with the creamy frosting (comical carrot designs in icing don't hurt) we turned to our LAist Featured Photos pool for evidence of the sweet treat's popularity.

But we came up short. As in...only one photo. Thinking maybe it was just our photogs whose shutters weren't bugging on Bugs' favorite food in dessert form, we tried to find some LA restos and bakeries whose carrot cakes were in the spotlight. But...nope.

So we settled for some good old fashioned food porn to satisfy our carrot cake-by-camera craving right now (what--you'd prefer photos of some come-hither carrots in the raw instead?). This means we're asking you to tell us not only where you think you can get the best damn carrot cake in Los Angeles--but to also take a picture of it and add it to our pool, for crying out loud!
