    I made this cake and icing and it turned out as good as it looked when Jamie made it on "The Martha Stewart Show" The cake was very moist and flavorful and the icing was very creamy and light. I will be making this cake over and over for years to come.

    This cake turned out excellent. I made it for my mother's birthday, it's her favorite, and it turned out to be a hit with everyone. I did two things different though. I used self-rising cake flour instead of self-rising flour, which might have made the cake a little lighter. And I used dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar. I followed the directions exactly when I made the icing and it turned out great as well. Not runny and not too limey.

    This cake did not live up to my expectations. It was dry and flavorless. The icing was the only good part. I guess if you look like Jamie Oliver no one is really paying attention to the cake.

    I really liked this cake, I also found that it was not necessary to use the juice of 2 limes in the icing, as this makes the icing too watery. I did not have the ground almonds and used cream cheese instead of mascarpone, but it turned out well.

    While there were rave reviews at dinner today this recipe left lots of guessing...how much juice is in the orange, how much zest, how much lime juice in the icing (the icing was runny), and why weigh the carrotsn n n n n n why not give the cup equivalent. The batter was more than a 9 x9 inch pan.

    Guys, really... this cake was like a brick and the lime icing was just too over powering. Plus, the methodology behind it was way to complicated for a simple carrot cake. As a high end gourmet chef, I really have to say...this recipe is a major disappointment.

    I think that it means 9" square x 2" (H)

    The recipe calls for a "9-by-2-inch square baking pan". Obviously a typo, but please clarify. Should that read "a 9-by-12-inch (rectangle) baking pan" or "a 9-by-9-by-2-inch square baking pan"? I watched the video and I believe Jamie mentioned an 8-inch square pan. Which is correct?

    Mascarpone cheese is a very smooth rich cheese. It is one of the priciest on the market, but can be made at home. All you need is Sour Salt and a quart of heavy cream. I'm sure Martha has a recipe for how to make it at home.
