Carrot Cake with Cardamom Orange Simple Syrup and Cream Cheese Frosting

April 1, 2013

Carrot cake is always a huge hit in our house.  For my father-in-law’s birthday, I made a layered carrot cake with hints of orange and cardamom.

To keep it moist, I brushed each layer with a simple syrup (with orange zest, orange extract, and steeped with cardamom pods), and used my favorite vanilla cream cheese frosting recipe (with vanilla paste, of course). It was a great opportunity to practice my cake decorating skills.
