Today was a rainy ol’ day in Brisbane, which is just perfect weather for baking with the kiddies!  I have an order coming up for a Refined Sugar Free cake coming up & wanted to make the icing JUST RIGHT, to taste like a real frosting…

I ended up taking it about {5 steps} further and the cake is Gluten/Wheat Free, Lactose/Dairy Free, Egg Free, Natural Colors & Refined Sugar Free!

The ‘Cream Cheese Frosting’ on a Carrot Cake is normally with Philly Cream Cheese and fresh lemon juice.  I decided to tweak from lemon to lime and I am so happy with the result.  It is beautiful, smooth, refreshing and sweet without being sickly.

 

I happened to personally love the idea of making this recipe Lactose/Dairy Free, as the cake recipe is naturally Lactose Free but the Cream Cheese-ness always made it a No-Go Zone for the beautiful Lactose/Dairy people.  I had to change that!

 

And the result?

 

It is gorgeous & tastes just like the original old fashioned carrot cake!
