Carrot Cake with Orange-Saffron Cream
Homemade carrot cake is always a treat. In this recipe, a topping made of whipped mascarpone cream flavored with orange, saffron and white chocolate elevates the super-moist carrot cake. To make the cake healthier, we've used half whole-wheat flour instead of all white flour--you won't notice the difference in this delicious cake.
To make ahead: Store cake (Steps 1-3) airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.
