Nutritional Information

Storage instructions Store somewhere cool and dark like a pantry. If your house is super hot in summer then it is possible the heat will have some effects on our products - the worst that could happen is things like chocolate might melt or the matcha might become a bit discolored, which doesn’t affect the taste of the cake. This is unavoidable with high quality ingredients and no preservatives added. If you are worried, you can store the kits in the fridge, or you could just bake your cake ASAP after receiving it.

Dimensions The cake kit boxes are 15cm (width) x 18cm (height) x 6.5cm (depth)

Instructions & FAQs

Fresh ingredients you will need

For the cake:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup of oil
  • 1 2/3 cups grated carrots

For the icing:

  • 250g (1 packet) cream cheese at room temperature

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.

  2. Press the non-stick liner into an 8” / 20cm cake pan (the liner is intentionally oversized so you will end up with The Caker’s signature ripples in the sides of your cake).

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, 2/3 cup of oil and 1 2/3 cups / 240g grated carrot until well incorporated.

  4. In two parts, fold the Cake Mix into the carrot mixture using a silicone spatula. Don’t overmix!

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it out to the sides.

  6. Bake the cake for around 30–40 minutes. Every oven is different, so keep an eye on the cake as it bakes, it will be ready when it is springy to the touch and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the centre.

  7. Once baked, allow the cake to sit for 10 minutes in its pan, then turn it out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool in the fridge.

  8. Using an electric mixer, beat together the Icing Mix with 250g of cream cheese on high speed until smooth.

  9. Once the cake is completely cool, place it onto a serving plate and spread the cream cheese icing onto it.

  10. To decorate, cut one corner off the Salted Caramel and drizzle over the icing. Top with fresh edible flowers if desired!

  11. Serve at room temperature. To store, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

TOP TIPS TO REMEMBER

This cake is super easy to make, the main things to remember when making it are:

  • preheat your oven!
  • don't overmix the batter once you've added the dry ingredients
  • make sure your cake is completely cool before icing it

WHAT IS THE BEST SIZE PAN TO USE?

Using an 8” (20cm) pan is really important, otherwise your cake might be too tall and be difficult to cook through, or too flat and resemble a pancake. I’ve sourced a cake pan, which is the perfect dimensions and thickness to ensure your cake bakes perfectly so be sure to add it to your cart before you check out.

CAN I ADD NUTS?

Yes! Adding a generous handful of chopped walnuts or any other nuts you like is a great idea.

WHAT ELSE COULD I ADD?

Pineapple goes really well with this cake! You can add pineapple chunks to the batter and / or freeze-dried pineapple as decorations - both are amazing.

WHAT SHOULD MY BATTER LOOK LIKE?

Your batter should be thick as opposed to runny.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN IT'S BAKED?

Your cake is ready when a sharp knife or skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. The reason I recommend checking cakes regularly after the halfway point is that you want to catch the cake at the moment it is baked to perfection, especially considering a cake will continue to cook for a few minutes after it has been removed from the oven. Your cake should rise slightly and have a flat, matte surface.

WHAT TEXTURE SHOULD MY BAKED CAKE BE?

Your cake should be tender, dense and bordering on brownie-like. My cakes all have a sumptuous, close-crumb texture due to the high amount of ground almonds in the recipe!

CAN I MAKE CUPCAKES?

You can also make about 8 minicakes or about 30 babycakes with this kit. If doing this, reduce the bake time to 20-25 minutes depending on size.

  1. Prepare your cake batter according to the recipe card provided.

  2. Line a mini or babycake tray with enough cupcake papers for either size (babycakes are around 3.5cm diameter on their base, minicakes are around 6cm in diameter).

  3. Fill each cupcake paper with your cake batter using a teaspoon. For babycakes make sure each paper is filled about 1-2mm below the top line, for minicakes, fill the papers about ⅔ full.

  4. Bake for around 20-30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Every oven is different, so you may need to bake your babycakes for a shorter or longer time - keep an eye on them as they bake!

  5. Allow your cupcakes to cool for 10 minutes in their tray, then take each out to cool on a cooling rack.

  6. Leave to cool completely before icing.

WHAT ADJUSTMENTS DO I NEED TO MAKE IF BAKING AT HIGH ALTITUDE?

Because the rate of evaporation is faster at high altitude, cakes often require more liquid and longer bake times so you should favor an overpour instead of an underpour of all liquid ingredients and don't be alarmed if your cake takes longer than the prescribed bake time. Also, the lighter air at high altitude allows cake batter to expand more and faster, often making it necessary to increase the oven temperature by 25° and to use a larger baking pan if you have one.

Spiced Carrot Cake Kit with Salted Caramel *$5 OFF*

Spiced Carrot Cake Kit with Salted Caramel *$5 OFF*

This kit creates a very sticky carrot cake that is gently spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. I chose to put dried currants in this recipe because I love the little sweet yet tart bursts they add to each bite. Of course, cream cheese icing is an absolute classic with carrot cake and to top everything off, it comes with a sachet of organic salted caramel to drizzle over.
