Serves 12 Total Time 2hrs 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 250ml vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g carrots, grated
  • 100g Lindt Excellence White Chocolate with a Touch of Vanilla, finely chopped
  • 250g full-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 60g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 1 Lindt Chocolate Gold Bunny
  • 1 pkt Lindt Chocolate Mini Eggs

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/160 Fan/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line three 15 cm/6-inch loose-based round cake tins with greaseproof paper.
  2. Whisk together the flour with the baking powder, spices, bicarbonate of soda and salt until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar, oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the carrots. Spoon evenly between the prepared tins and smooth over the tops.
  5. Bake for around 35–40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool completely in the tins before turning out onto wire racks.
  6. Meanwhile, make the frosting: Place the chopped chocolate into a heat-proof bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water.
  7. Stir gently until melted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  8. Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the butter and cooled white chocolate until blended, then beat in the icing sugar until smooth.
  9. If the frosting is too soft, chill in the fridge for 10–15 minutes to firm up enough to pipe.
  10. Place one cake onto a flat plate. Using a palette knife, spread with one third of the frosting and top with a second cake.
  11. Repeat with another third of frosting and the final cake. Spread the remaining frosting on the top and down the sides of the tiers, creating a ‘naked’ effect.
  12. Sprinkle the top of the cake with coconut, leaving a 2.5 cm/1-inch border. Unwrap the Chocolate Bunny and set in the centre, surrounded by Lindt Mini Eggs. 
  13. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
