Preheat the oven to 180 °C. (357°F)
For the caramel, cook the sugar in a pan over low heat without stirring until an amber caramel is formed. Still hot, pour in a cake mold, let it dry.
For the cake, blend the carrot with sugar, eggs, oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder until you get a homogeneous mixture.
Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the flour little by little. Reserve.
In a blender, beat the egg whites until they double in volume.
Fold the egg whites to the cake mix and incorporate well. Set aside.
For the flan, liquefy the evaporated milk with the condensed milk, the egg, the vanilla essence, the cream cheese, the lemon juice and the zest.
Pour the cake mix into the mold with the caramel. Spread well and carefully pour the flan with a spoon to avoid mixing the layers.
Bake the cake in a bain-marie, covered with aluminum foil, about 1 hour or until cooked.
When the cake is slightly warm, remove the mold and cool completely.
For the frosting, beat the cream cheese with the whipping cream, the vanilla essence and the powdered sugar. Separate some of the frosting to color a little green and another bit of orange frosting. Place in pastry bag with small piping tips.
Decorate the impossible cake with white frosting rosettes and draw carrots on the rosettes. Add chopped walnut, serve and enjoy.


Garnish with frosting and chopped nuts.


It is important that you carefully fold the egg whites when preparing the cake. If you wish you can add an ounce of spiced brandy to the flan.
