This is how it's made Easter Carrot Cake

  1. Step 1

    Grease and line the base of an 8” deep sided cake tin.

  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl combine the melted Stork with Butter, eggs, vanilla and brown sugar.

  3. Step 3

    Stir in the grated carrot followed by the flour, baking powder and spices and mix until even.

  4. Step 4

    Transfer to the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 55 minutes until springy to the touch and a skewer when inserted comes away clean. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

  5. Step 5

    To make the frosting beat together the Stork with Butter and cream cheese, add the icing sugar and beat well. Spread over the top of the cake and scatter over the chopped pistachios.

  6. Step 6

    To make the bunny roll a large ball of white ready to roll icing for the body and set into the centre of the frosting. Shape and add 2 small bunny feet and a small ball for the tail. Add the pink pads to the balls of the feet with a little pink ready to roll icing.

  7. Step 7

    Remove the orange peel from ½ an orange and cut into small circles, approx. 1” in diameter. With scissors cut out ¼ of each circle. Add 3-4 chives to the centre of the circle and curve the orange back together to form the carrot top.
