Heat the oven to 150C/fan 130C/gas 2. Line a 22cm deep springform cake tin with baking parchment or silicone paper. Sift the flour, cinnamon and baking powder and stir in the sugars, making sure any lumps are crushed. Beat the eggs with the oil and orange zest. Stir in the carrots then fold this and the rest of the ingredients, into the flour mixture. Spoon the mixture into the tin and level the surface. Bake for 1 hour 25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin.
For the frosting, beat the butter, sugar and syrup until soft and then beat in the cream cheese until you have a smooth mixture. Chill the mixture until it’s thick but spreadable. Pipe in whirls or spread a thick layer on top of the cake.
