It wouldn’t be lockdown without a bake! Following a recommendation from a friend, we baked Clodagh McKenna’s Carrot Cake with Orange Blossom Frosting and it did not disappoint.

Clodagh describes this cake as filled with sunshine and I can see why. The cinnamon, raisons and orange blossom are warming and lift your mood on a rainy day such as today.

I added edible calendula petals and thyme from our garden to the frosting, for a little colour pop. These were taken in the beautiful evening light.

I’d love to hear about your baking triumphs.
