Carrot cake is a favourite amongst friends and family and is always requested for birthday cakes. This cake is simple yet satisfying and best served with cream cheese icing. To make a double layer cake (pictured below) just times the recipe by 1.5 and use 2 x 23cm cake tins.
Red velvet is like a red chocolate sponge. It looks striking when you cut a slice with the different layers of white and red. There are lots of ways to decorate a red velvet cake depending on your theme.
I tried this delightful cake at Kim Evan’s Little & Friday Cafe in Newmarket, Auckland. Not long after my friend, Izaak and I brought the book and began experimenting with Kim’s treats. These lemon cakes would have to be my absolute favourite and very popular amongst friends, family and colleagues. This recipe makes 12 mini cakes or 1 double layer cake. I have made these recipe many times in a range of sizes including mini cakes, a large cake and doubling this recipe to make a six layer cake (pictured below).
