Rating: 3 1 Comment

Classic Carrot Cake and coconut team up for a big win in this sporty sweet.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Hydrate the carrots and raisins in 1 cup hot tap water for a minimum of 5 minutes. Drain and press out excess water using a strainer over a bowl or pan.
  3. Reserve ½ cup dry cake mix. In a large bowl, combine remaining cake mix, oil and 1 egg; beat until crumbly. Press firmly on the bottom of 13"x9" pan.
  4. In the same bowl combine remaining ingredients except the coconut and frostings; mix well. Pour over prepared crust. Place the 13"x9" pan on a cookie sheet (to prevent excessive browning on the bottom) then place in a 350°F preheated oven for 20 min.
  5. After the first bake time of 20 minutes has elapsed remove the 13"x9" pan from the oven and spread the ½ cup of sweet coconut flake evenly over the top.
  6. Place back in the oven on the cookie sheet to prevent the bottom from getting too dark.
  7. Bake your Game Day Carrot bar until set and the top is golden.
  8. Cool Bar and cut out desired 1"x2" bars or 2"x2"-inch squares.
  9. To decorate: stir and colour a portion of your frosting and place in a sealed freezer bag. Cut the corner and pipe desired Game Day Sport idea (football, hockey, baseball, basketball or soccer).
  10. Pipe details using a sealed freezer bag using 1 tbsp. of chocolate frosting warmed for only 5 seconds in the microwave. For the football pipe laces on the football using the cream cheese icing. Complete your platter with athletic figurines.
