I made my first ever carrot cake 2 weeks ago and made it square as I've not fondanted a square cake before.  The recipe I used is here - http://www.lindyscakes.co.uk/2010/01/11/a-kiwi-carrot-cake-recipe/ and it produced a really lovely moist and light cake.

Not sure if I am allowed to post links like this as fairly new to this site - so apols if I shouldn't.
