Orange Carrot mousse cake
My first baking in 2012! This one is for my dad. He asked me if I would make him cakes with carrot in it, for 60 people. They took a tour through the company. My dad has a farm and carrots are a big part of the company. So the thinking started… Something with carrots. What about a carrot and orange mousse cake? Not just an ordinary carrot cake but one in a new style?
I made a carrot cake with cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and walnuts for the bottom. A nice jaconde with orange stripes and for the filling an orange mousse. And also an orange puree insert. For decoration I made carrots from marzipan and I candied some oranges, also really delicious! On the pictures you see the result!
