Carrot Cake With Lime Mascarpone Icing

Wednesday, 18 September 2013


Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

Last Thursday was Ian's birthday, so as a special birthday treat I decided to make him a Carrot Cake - Ian's favourite! Now this was not a task I took on lightly - I had a lot to live up to...every time we visit Norfolk we love to eat at Byfords which makes THE most amazing carrot cake. 
I knew it was going to be tough to produce something exceptional that could hold it's own against the infamous Byfords Carrot Cake!







And now for the Mascarpone & Lime icing...




I'm so pleased to report my cake was a success...quote "This is the best cake I've had in a number of years". High praise indeed (big self pat on the back)!!! 

Have a yummy Wednesday Lovelies
