- 3 pcs.Organic eggs
- 4 pcs.Carrots, medium-sized
- 125 mlOil

For the icing and decoration

- 2.5 tbsp.Water

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Wash the carrots, cut off the ends and finely grate.
Put the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, granulated sugar and hazelnuts) into a bowl and mix well.
Scrape the pulp out of a vanilla pod and add the flour mixture and other spices (cinnamon, allspice, salt).
Add eggs, oil and milk to the dry ingredients and use a mixer to mix.
Gently squeeze the grated carrots and mix into the batter.
Grease and flour a ring-shaped tin. Pour in the batter and bake at 180 °C for 55–60 minutes.
Allow the cake to cool and carefully turn it out of the tin. Make the icing from the powdered sugar and the juice of a lemon. Add the water gradually so that you can control the consistency. The icing should be quite thick. Once ready, spread the icing over the cake.
Knead two-thirds of the marzipan with red and yellow food coloring until you obtain an orange mixture. Color the remaining marzipan green. Make 16 small carrots and use them to decorate the cake.
