Weekend Bakes: Carrot Cake

OK, so I should not be craving warmth and spice in the middle of June but there is something about this unpredictable British Summertime (perhaps exacerbated by an air of uncertainty in general) that makes me want Carrot Cake.

The recipe for my Carrot Cake is on the Recipe page, along with the recipe for Cream Cheese Frosting and a little how-to guide to making those little Sugarpaste Carrots. The little carrots are totally optional but great fun to make, either with kids or whilst binge watching Season 4 of Orange is the New Black on Netflix (guilty!).

Read the recipes, print them out, check your cupboards tonight and grab anything you’re missing tomorrow in preparation for the ultimate in comforting weekend bakes. Don’t forget to let me know how you get on!

Be good to yourselves, and each other, and stay gorgeous.
