Not-Just-For Easter Carrot Cake

I traditionally used to make this for dessert on Easter Sunday, but I have had so many requests for it at all times during the year. It is a guaranteed hit no matter when it is served. Just be prepared for a bit of work. You don't get a cake this wonderful by taking shortcuts! (While this looks similar to another recipe posted here, it diverges in many aspects.) Also, this cake needs to be made a day ahead of time and refrigerated overnight, which is not reflected in the prep time.
