Carrot and Zucchini Cake with Coconut Frosting

When I first tried a slice of carrot and zucchini cake at work, made by a wonderful colleague of mine, my tastebuds landed instantly in heaven! Having tried just a plain carrot cake before and thinking that it must be semi-healthy as it has carrots in it right? Now trying the same just with more vegetables in it couldn’t make it any better! After finding a simple recipe for this devine carrot and zucchini cake I decided to embark on this wonderful baking experience.
