How To Order The TikTok Carrot Cake Latte At Starbucks

With spring officially here, it's only natural to adjust your Starbucks order accordingly. Goodbye, candy cane cold brew; hello, carrot cake latte! And before you argue that carrot cake recipes are better-suited to fall, let us just point out that bunnies eat carrots, and bunnies are a big part of Easter and spring festivities. Therefore, carrot cake is perfect for spring. Case closed.

Anyway, as you might have guessed, the carrot cake drink isn't on the official Starbucks menu. Rather, this particular recipe comes to us from TikTok, where folks are pretty good at coming up with custom drinks for anything you can think of -– including carrot cake. Per Megan Brooke's TikTok recipe, order two pumps of chai, two pumps of toffee nut syrup, one pump of brown sugar syrup, three shots of blonde espresso, a dash of oat milk, and ice.

According to The Kitchn's review of the TikTok carrot cake latte, the drink has "major carrot cake vibes" without "[going] overboard." However, not everyone is as pleased with this spring-themed Starbucks drink.

TikTok is skeptical of the Starbucks carrot cake latte

While a few TikTok users agreed that the Starbucks carrot cake latte is "heavenly," others complained that the drink was nothing like carrot cake. One person commented, "You forgot to add the carrots," and another wrote, "Just tried it! I hate it!"

That being said, some viewers were helpful enough to suggest small changes to the recipe. One barista recommended a cinnamon foam, while another brought up cream cheese cold foam. A TikToker who orders this drink regularly said they order a venti with the same number of pumps –- so more oat milk -– for a better ratio. On a similar note, The Kitchn suggests going with a dark roast espresso, or even just topping the drink off with cinnamon to add an extra kick.

However, if this drink still isn't carrot cake-y enough for you, liv.yah's TikTok demonstrates how to whip up a homemade carrot cake latte using carrot juice, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup, and cheese foam.
