Joy of Baking

Tis the season for getting cozy by the fireplace, spending time with your loved ones and spending time in the kitchen baking up delicious treats. Who doesn’t love the holidays? There’s a lot to celebrate this year especially if you weren’t able to spend time with your family last year.

It’s become a tradition here at Genesis Land to ask our resident home baker, Leo Perez for her favourite holiday recipe. If you remember, last year she shared her holiday Bundt Cake recipe with us (click here to try it) and it was decadent and a crowd pleaser. This year, Leo has graciously shared her favourite carrot cake recipe with us, and it is mouthwatering, trust us.

Try your hand at making Leo’s carrot cake this holiday season! Watch her cooking video below to learn how to make it and don’t forget to tag us on Instagram when you serve it to your friends and family this Christmas!
