We’re crazy for carrot cake
WHEN we received one of the carrot cake entries for the second week of the inaugural Great Travel Daily Bake Off, we thought we’d been sent a piece of stunning artwork.
Janelle anderson from Queanbeyan City travel not only created a scrumptious rendition of her grandmother’s favourite cake (right) - she also artfully staged it in a delightful presentation to give it the attention it truly deserves.
There are a few secrets fresh ginger and raisins soaked in pineapple juice, while the all important frosting has cream cheese with added maple syrup, plus a touch of cinnamon - also known as “the king of spices”.
The Travel Daily team has also joined in the baking fun this week, with our Production and Editorial Executive anna Piper making some delicious carrot cup cakes (left).
And finally our Associate Editor Myles stedman produced his own rendition of a tasty-looking carrot cake too (right).
We’ve also received lots of entries for this week’s choc-chip cookies theme which we will publish in an upcoming issue, and next week we wrap up the Sep baking challenge with “Family Favourites” - so keep cooking and send through your efforts for an opportunity to win a $50 gift card - send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
