Cake: 2 large carrots, peeled 1 1/2 cups oat flour or buckwheat flour 1 cup dates 1 cup dried pineapple (or more dates) 1/2 cup dried coconut 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
To make the frosting: blend all ingredients in your high speed blender or processor until smooth, adding as little water as possible. Taste it. Nom. Put in a bowl and set aside.
To make the cake: cut the carrots into little pieces. Add everything else into the processor and blend until everything is in tiny pieces and sticks together.
To assemble the cake: Press half the cake mix into the bottom of a 9inch spring form pan. Spread on about 1/3 of the frosting on top and put it in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until the frosting in hard. Then press on the rest of the cake mix on top of the frozen frosting. Let it sit in the freezer overnight then remove from the spring form pan and frost the entire cake with the remaining frosting. If you can’t wait overnight, wait at least an hour. Decorate to your liking with pistachios, almonds, walnuts, goji berries, and shredded carrots- anything you have on hand will do.
