Prepare 500 gram FunCakes Mix for Carrot Cake according to the instructions on the package. Mix for 5 minutes. Grease the baking pan with the Bake Release Spray and fill it with the mixture. Bake the cake in about 50-60 minutes golden brown. Take the cake out of the baking pan and let it cool down on the cooling grid.
In the meantime make the glaze. Mix the Cristo and the water with the mixer on the lowest setting until the moisture is gone. Add the icing sugar and the meringue powder and mix it slowly for about 5-6 minutes until it becomes a solid glaze.
Tip! Add a FunCakes Flavour paste to the glaze for more variation.
Devide the glaze over three bowls. Add the orange colouring gel to a bowl and green to another bowl, leave the third one white. Cover the top of the cake with the glaze. Fill a piping bag with the orange glaze and decorating tip #005 and pipe carrots on the cake. Add the green glaze to another piping bag with decorating tip #002 and pipe the foliage of the carrots.
