Delicious carrot cake...

Do you ever buy cook books with the intention of cooking something out of the ordinary and expanding your culinary skills but in the end it ends up being an unused accessory in your kitchen? Well I've had this Jamie Oliver cook book for almost 2 years now and although I've flipped through the pages drooling at every recipe, I haven't managed to cook something...until last night that is. I decided to try out his recipe for carrot cake with lime mascarpone icing. A bit of work but very delicious! I'm also trying out my new app on my new iPhone4. Love the filters. 

Ready to go in the oven.

The juice and zest of 2 limes. I love how the limes look...almost like the hair of a wet shaking dog. The smell is also very refreshing!
Mascarpone, cream cheese, lemon juice and lemon zest. 
Presentation: lemon mascarpone topping drizzled over carrot cake with dried cranberries and walnuts.

    Although I'm not a chef and about the only thing I can "cook" are boiled eggs, I did enjoy reading of your culinary adventures and that carrot cake certainly looks delicious.

    Have a wonderful week ahead!
