About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Oh god the diet will be gone forever!!! they look fantastic I have to make them :-)


I've put myself on a baking ban cos I'm trying to lose weight. And you post the perfect Carrot Cake receipe. The very thing I announced in the office yesterday I was CRAVING.......
I shall have to try it another time - or maybe this weekend with my little man!


Love your attic
Love your blog
Love your humour
Love your style


Carrot cake is my absolute favourite cake too - I will definitely try the recipe as I also own the be-ro book - It was one of the first books I owned when I left home 15 years ago! The trouble is, my kiddies won't eat it if I tell them its got carrots in it (like the Peter Kay joke - CHEESE cake? - A cake made of CHEESE???!) - Hope you've seen Peter Kay or else you'll wonder what I'm on! - Nat x


That looks good ... do you really melt the butter for the frosting? or just soften it, like making butter cream?

oh wow!

I am sorry words failed me for a second there, I am going to try it but as I have said before I can never make cakes work but I will try again!

thanks Alex


Hi there, Bugger, there goes the diet... guess what I will be making this weekend! Kathyx PS. Will speak to Willemien about the Spring day there will be 5 of us (hopefully) which is great as that is the max. anyway! Really, really looking forward to meeting you at CL Christmas Fair.x


OK now I'm going to have to bake that cake cos you said it is the best and I too love, no love is far too weak, I LOVE carrot cake toooo. mmmmmmmmmmmmm


I'm off to buy some carrots - right now :-)

Oh that sounds yummy. I want to make it this weekend! Oh dear, I am not going to fit into my Wedding dress at this rate! I think I have the book you mention. Does it have a funny old fashioned picture of a child doing baking on the front? It's a great little book. I think mine used to belong to my Grandma and is very worn but I use it a lot as it has so many good basic recipes in it.


Our favourite cake; going shopping tonight so ingredients will be on my list in 2 minutes! thank you, and am still making the sweetpotato fish cakes!

You little Imp you :) Do you know I have had no cooking facilities for two months, i also have a very sweet tooth and My favourite cake is the good olde Carrot Cake too :) I shall enjoy the wait and keep looking at your delightful photographs of the cake, now when is that bloomin range coming :) X

do you mind if i knit

Carrot cake is my favourite too!!!!!!!!!! Of all the cake in the world!
I still have your recipe for lemon drizzle cake waiting to be made, and this one is definately going to join the queue.............. Thankyou Lucy!



I've tried lots of different carrot cake recipes too, plus carrot cakes in cafes and carrot cakes from supermarkets. I can't resist them.
So it's Friday afternoon, I've got all the ingredients, the baking tin has been measured (9"x8")so we're off......

I think they'd be nice for Halloween - the squares decorated with something .... um witchy? or maybe just orangey!
Thanks so much for the recipe! x


I meant to congratulate you earlier for taking a photo whilst you were whisking!!! Multi-tasking!


This looks drop dead yummy. I love the idea of an orangey frosting instead of the usual heaviness of cream cheese frosting. Thanks for giving the recipe...just have to figure out the right amount of ingredients to add. Oh, and nice photos...I want to eat the pics because they look so up close and real.


I have the family coming for afternoon tea on Sunday and can't wait to try this recipe out. It looks GORGEOUS. Thank you.

Oh Yum!! I'm literally drooling on the screen, lol :) I LOVE carrot cake and so will definitely be trying this! My friend makes the most delicious choc chip cookies and I'm sure she said the recipe is from an old Be-Ro book! joanne x


Another carrot cake lover here.
Kitchens up and down the country will be smelling of mixed spice and orange juice as we all get whisking!
Thanks for sharing.
