This spiced, moist, classic cake is one of our best sellers, and for good reason! It is heady with cinnamon, nutmeg & vanilla. The carrots keep the cake moist but so do the poached clementines. Its full of nuts, spice & deep rich classic carrot cake texture. We layer it with vanilla cream cheese frosting, and finish with a final zest of orange or bergamot depending on the season. Oh, and it doesn’t contain raisins or sultanas. This cake was first thought to have been created during the II world war, when the ministry of food published a recipe for carrot cake, as using carrots gave a sweetness to cake, when sugar was soo scarce. But there are references to carrot cake dating back to the Middle Ages!

Ordered the 6 inch cake for a 10 person event, and it was the perfect amount. Everyone said how delicious the cake was and it was beautifully presented!
