Best Carrot Cake Ever

This is hands down my favourite carrot cake!! It’s a Brazilian version and is one of the most common and loved cakes in Brazil. It’s super soft and moist, the chocolate icing combines perfectly with it and its natural orange colour is beautiful. Everyone loves this cake, it’s a huge success with everyone who taste it. I’m sure you’ll love it too!!
