I haven’t bake or make any cakes for quite sometime now..with another bun in the oven, the cake oven stays barren..haha
So, there we were at my mom’s. Well, it was my brother’s birthday. We decided to make a cake that mom could indulge in (she’s been on a strict diet for a few years now to get healthy). So, we decided to make this No Bake Carrot Cake from Trinity’s Kitchen. You can look up for her video on youTube.
The cake is pretty simple to make, but let me ensure you it IS rich in taste and it is something you could really indulge in. It tastes even better after a few days in the fridge as it sets well.
Decoration was pretty decent. Covered the cake with some delicious creamy cashew and dates (combo) frosting. Topped with some walnuts, and some raisins around the cake as its border. And of course, what’s a birthday cake without some cake toppers for the birthday boy. The cake turned out beautifully. However the frosting was a bit challenging, I would make sure the dates were pitted before they are soaked so that they would really soften and blend a bit more easily. Other than that this is a really easy and tasty cake to assemble, enjoy! 🙂
