Carrot and Pineapple Cake with Lemon Frosting

I love this cake. A favourite recipe that is ever so moorish. What I particularly love is ‘playing’ with the effects of the frosting. This lovely natural drizzle down the sides of the cake is achieved very simply. Start by placing your cake in the refrigerator. Once cold, cover your cake with the frosting/icing and smooth it out the edges, so it just starts to fall over the side. The cake will be  cold enough to set the frosting/icing as it drips down the side. Donna Hay suggests making your icing with boiling water. The combination of warm icing and cold cake makes this styling trick work every time. Enjoy. xx
