Carrot and Cheesecake Tower

Living with my Dad and Michelle, you often get treated to delicious cakes and treats made by them. As it was my sister Sarah 34th birthday last Friday, I thought it was a perfect opportunity for myself to bake a cake. As I looked around for different recipes, I came across Carrot and Cheesecake Tower in the latest Asda magazine. The recipe was perfect as she had mentioned she missed The Cheesecake Factory carrot cake. As I know she loves carrot cake, it was an instant hit. The recipe was easy to follow, with the cake mixture having three components. One blending all the nuts in a food processor, the second the carrot, fruit and spices and the third eggs, sugar and flour. Following the easy steps, I combined them all together and the cake part was completed. The cheesecake filling part did cause confusion with the juice and the gelatine, but it worked. I think if making it again I would put as much filling or topping as it was overkill. Feedback from Sarah was yummy and even my nephew Josh had some to try. He loved it! It was a moist cake with flavour throughout. I would definitely make the carrot cake again and put the traditional frosting with it. Overall I’m pleased with how it look and love the fact that my nephew enjoyed it.
