Carrot Cake

As we went out for my friends' birthdays last night I decided a cake was absolutely necessary so took it upon myself to make one - I made the Hummingbird carrot cake as its 'healthy' and they're 'athletes' (both terms used loosely).  Its the first time I've made it, but not the first time the boys had eaten one but they were very complimentary!

I think I messed up the icing a bit - I decided using full-fat cream cheese was just wrong so used reduced fat but I think it might have made the icing thinner; I had to leave it to set a bit in the fridge before I iced with it to get it  to hold its' shape.  I also added orange zest to it to give it a bit extra and it worked really well.
