“I just had to email and say how much I love your Carrot cake mix! Admitted yes I do pass it off as home baked and cram it full of extras like pineapple, raisins, chocolate and nuts and top it with a cream cheese frosting and everyone loves it :) so this email is just to say thank you I've finally found a carrot cake that I love! Regards, ”
