I was thinking of creating something nice and festive – light enough to enjoy after a heavy Christmas dinner, yet indulging and full of festive of flavours.
This cake is not so calorie dense as usual Christmas bakes. I opted for something unusual:- spiced parsnips and carrots mixed with beautiful spices. I sweetened my cake with natural sweeteners and used gluten free and almond flours to make it light and moist.
This Festive White Chocolate, Parsnip and Carrot Cake is perfect if you have someone who is gluten intolerant coming to your party, and want to put together a treat that everyone else will also enjoy.
Layered with light mascarpone and white cacao chocolate melt frosting with a hint of maple syrup hits just the right sweetness with a slight scent of orange zest to give it that festive edge.
Merry Christmas and I truly hope this cake will be a welcome addition to your festive table. x
