Ingredients

For the icing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Line an 18cm square tin with baking parchment. Ask your grown-up helper to turn the oven on to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grate the carrots on the fine side of the grater, then tip them into a large bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Sift the sugar, flour, bicarb and cinnamon on top of the carrot, then add the orange zest and mix everything around a bit.

  • STEP 3

    Break the eggs into a bowl (scoop out any bits of shell), then add them to the bowl along with the oil. Mix everything together well.

  • STEP 4

    Scoop the cake mix into your tin and level the top. Ask a grown-up to put it in the oven for 30 minutes or until the cake is cooked. Cool.

  • STEP 5

    To make the icing, mix the butter and icing sugar together, then stir in the soft cheese until smooth.

  • STEP 6

    When the cake is cool, spread the top with the icing and cut into squares. Decorate with sprinkles, if you like.
