Four layers of carrot cake sponge are sandwiched between a chocolate and vanilla marbled cheesecake filling and thick layers of cream cheese icing. It’s a truly spectacular celebration cake that’s perfect for feeding a crowd.
This recipe is by Bea Vo, the creative brain behind Stax Diner, Boondocks Restaurant, The Famous Flames and, formerly, Bea’s of Bloomsbury, all in London. Her newest venture, Butterscotch, has a bakery in London’s White City and a new Tea Room in Marylebone.

Both layers of this cake are simple to make and will keep well, but, you could simplify the recipe and just make the carrot cake (it’s so easy).
This is a cake you can devote a whole day’s baking to or bake the cake and cheesecake layers a day ahead, then make the icing and assemble the cake on the day you want to serve. Leftovers will keep for 3-4 days in a sealed container in the fridge.
