New Thanksgiving Tradition: Six Layer Vegan Carrot Cake

Thanksgiving is a heavily regarded affair for the Phillips family. This year we had a smaller guest list and with at least 7 of us opting to dine vegan, the menu evolved from the more traditional fare to include some dishes that I hope will appear in the future. Seared seitan with a mustard herb reduction (Mr. Vedge's creation was the first platter to disappear), butternut squash dumplings, a lentil salad, and a six-layer vegan carrot cake that we'll be talking about for years to come.

I could not have ended the meal happier or more satisfied, but I must argue that this cake, from this recipe, is the best carrot cake that exists.
