How to make it

  • Cake sponge:
  • 1)Sift all the dry together except for the salt+sugar+nuts and set aside.
  • 2)Whisk the eggs, add sugar and salt and whip to a foam.
  • 3)While whisking the egg mixture gradually add the veg. oil.
  • 4)Turn off the mixer and incorporate the finely grated carrots.
  • 5)Add the dry ingredients and the chopped walnuts. Mix enough only to incorporate the ingredients.
  • 4)Spray a 10 inch cake pan with a liner and bake at 375 for 50 min. or until the cake springs back when pressed lightly in the center.
  • Cake filling:
  • 1) Paddle the cream cheese until smooth and softened.
  • 2)Add the butter. Paddle until smooth and fluffy.
  • 3)Add the vanilla.
  • 4)Add all of the sifted powdered sugar. Mix until the cream is fluffy and holds it shape.
  • To decorate:
  • 1)Cut the cake in half and place some of the filling in the middle.
  • 2)Place the top back on and ice the cake.
  • 3)Comb the top of the cake and place walnuts on the side.
  • 4)Dye marzipan orange and green to make the carrots. Roll the orange marzipan into a carrot shape and use a knife to make the carrot lines.
  • 5)Take a small amount of the green marzipan and flatten and cut to make the leaves for the carrots.
  • 6) Make a small hole in the middle of the top of the carrot and insert the green marzipan leaves.
