anyone fancy carrot cake for afternoon tea?

It's been a while, I lost my camera at Christmas. But I have been doing lots of baking and have taken the odd picture of my creations.

Carrot cake is my favourite cake ever, and I've spent quite a lot of time reading Delia's recipe in her vegetarian cookbooks. Some old friends/ work colleagues were popping round for tea and cake and the occasion was special enough to warrant trying the recipe out.

I was delighted with the result, so moist and delicious. The icing was made from mascapone and cream cheese....it was perfect. I loved this cake and can't wait to make it again some day.

Here's the lovely spread we enjoyed, tasty sarnies and you can spot my treasured sugar bowl from Liberty (bought using a birthday gift from D + R- thanks boys!), my lovely sailor plat from east London vintage fair and the top of a cake stand I managed to save after smashing the bottom half - which was a bit of a disaster as it was a gift for M from K + E!

I have a few more posts coming so stay tuned folks. CCC is back with a vengeance!
