Easter seems to come around so quickly each year; I never quite feel prepared. This year has been no exception!

I was looking for a quick, delicious carrot cake recipe recently, as a base for making an Easter cake. Before I found one, I noticed I had two boxes of Donna Hay carrot cake mix in my pantry. So, I decided to bake both cakes and turn them into a simple Easter Cake.

It worked perfectly.

I decided I must share it with you because it’s so simple and so delicious!
