  • Step 1

    Combine the sugar and oil in a bowl and whisk together, stir in the carrots and orange zest, followed gradually by the eggs.
    Sift the flour and cardamom together into a bowl then fold into the wet ingredients.

  • Step 2

    Divide the mixture evenly between the two tins and bake at 180C for 35 minutes - cake test with a skewer. If the skewer comes out clean the cake is ready, if not bake for a further 5 minutes and test again, repeat as necessary.

  • Step 3

    Once the cake tins are cool enough to handle turn out the cakes on to a wire rack to cool. Once they are completely cold start the icing.

  • Step 4

    Cream the butter and cream cheese together until very soft, then add the sifted icing sugar, followed by the orange juice. If the icing is a little slack add a little more icing sugar, if it is too thick add a little more juice.

  • Step 5

    Sandwich the cakes together with a few spoonfuls of the icing, then ice the top with another few spoonfuls of icing. Spread over the top with an even swirl, then decorate with orange zest.

I think this is the start of an exciting new column/feature! Maybe Even a book! I am excited and I have the perfect Waffle Shoppe in mind that I am going to email you about right now. (In New Jersey.) But in all fairness, considering the vast amount of users from all over the world, it might be time this site had it's on little corner just for recipe conversions. I know you can find them all over the web, but if you are already on CO+K, why would you want to leave? Lol.

Ohhh, we'd love to feature the waffle shop too. We're working on conversions too - we have all the data for it, so it's very possible!
