There’s something about carrot cake that just screams springtime. Maybe it’s the colorful cake, bursting with carrots, nuts and raisins. It could be the luscious cream cheese frosting, which is always welcome at a festive dessert table. And we can’t forget that Easter, the ideal holiday for carrot cake, is right around the corner. No matter your reasoning, it’s pretty safe to say that carrot cake is the one dessert that sums up spring. And, since spring is just a few weeks away (yay!), now is the perfect time to start your seasonal baking.

That’s why we’re so excited for Zac Young’s LIVE baking class on the Food Network Kitchen app this weekend. He’ll be whipping up a carrot cake roll on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at 6 p.m. EST — and you can bake along with him for free! If you’re not familiar with Zac Young, you’re in for a major treat. He’s a pro at taking a traditional dessert and transforming it into a simple yet stunning masterpiece (bananas foster pudding, anyone?)

Trust us when we say it doesn’t get better than Zac’s delicious rolled-up dessert. He starts by baking a classic carrot cake, which he warms up with spices like ginger and cardamom. Once that’s out of the oven, he’ll guide you through the rolling process — with no breaks or cracks in sight. A thick, creamy frosting and a sprinkle of nuts, raisins and coconut take the whole dessert to the next level. By the time you’re done, you’ll have a crowd-pleasing treat that just may trick your guests into thinking you stopped by the bakery first.

Ready to satisfy your sweet tooth? Head to the Food Network Kitchen app this Sunday to bake along with Zac. He’ll be there to answer all your baking questions — and teach you a few tips and tricks along the way. The best part? We’re unlocking this live class so it’s free for everyone, even if you’re not a Food Network Kitchen subscriber yet. We’ll see you there!
