Carrot-Orange Bomb

I was watching Masterchef Australia on LF. The contestants had 4 hours to create a beautiful layered master-piece. That challenge inspired me to throw a challenge to myself and create a layered dish with different elements with available ingredients.

So I had carrots and oranges in the pantry and voila, this is the multilayered dessert that I made out of those ingredients. This dessert has the following 6 elements – orange zest shortbread biscuit, carrot- orange cake, carrot halwa icing, orange syrup, orange-flavored whipped cream and carrot rose.
