Welcome to the April reveal day for the Bundt Bakers! This month our theme was chosen by Anshie who blogs at Spice Roots; she chose "Hidden Surprise"! There was a LOT of trial and error for many of us this month, several of us baked 2 and even 3 cakes to get the taste, appearance, and "surprise" we were aiming for!

I posted my Kitchen Fail a couple days ago - my first attempt for this theme was a Rainbow Cake, but I did not get pretty swirls of color, so I moved on to the next cake I had on my list to try - this delicious Carrot Bundt Cake!
I am so glad I got to try this one out - the cake is wonderful. Moist, full of crunchy bites of nuts, surrounded by tender and sweet carrot cake; and tucked in the middle? A delicious, creamy cheesecake swirl!
This cake just gets a light dusting of powdered sugar and it is ready to go. The bottom bakes up crunchy, and the rest of the cake is completely tender; it makes for the perfect texture contrast.
