Carrot cake is my absolute favourite! I’ve never tried making a swiss roll with it. What a fantastic idea!

It is very hard to know what to say really. Except possibly yum, yum, yum, yum and yummy.

Carrot cake in swiss roll form. I am swooning and can’t wait to make it again.

OMG yum this is a genius idea for Easter and Spring.  

I actually made carrot cake muffins the other day and forgot how much I LOVE all the spices in carrot cake, so good!
