The best gluten free sugar free keto carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and keto jello is delicious keto Easter dessert! πŸ£πŸ‡πŸ“πŸ₯•πŸΏ

Few days ago we went to one private Easter garden with our children. They could watch the squirrels 🐿 and play with rabbits πŸ‡ and chickens. πŸ“ Afterwards they went to an eggs hunt. It was so beautiful experience for all of us! At the end they served us with a carrot cake with orange juice jelly on top. Of course, I couldn’t eat that cake, as it was not sugar free but I was definitely inspired to make my low carb and gluten free carrot cake. To be even more delicious, I put on top fantastic keto jello, and I have to proudly say – my low carb carrot cake rocks! It was tasty, sugar free, gluten free cake with wonderful smell! πŸ°πŸ’•

How to make keto jello layer

Keto jelly layer of this carrot cake is so good and there is a possibility (if you have kids) that your kiddos start eating this layer first and destroy the cake if you leave it unattended.

Sugar free jelly is easy to make, even if it sounds complicated and it’s your first time – worry not! Here are my step by step instructions with pictures of the procedure!

For the beginning, prepare strong rooibos tea. β˜•οΈ You need 1 cup of tea. Rooibos tea is aromatic African tea and it’s aroma compliment to aromas of carrot, orange and cinnamon incredibly well. 

Put the tea, lemon juice and sweetener in the saucepan on the stove and bring it to boil. When start to boil add gradually beef organic gelatin and whisk. Whisk until gelatin dissolved. When gelatin dissolved, add 2 drops of edible orange essential oil or add orange 🍊 edible aroma for cakes and desserts.

After gelatin is completely dissolved, leave it to cool a little bit (just shouldn’t be hot, but shouldn’t be totally cold because it will harden as it’s cooling).

When it’s not hot anymore, pour it gently over the cream cheese layer and leave it in the fridge for at least 45 minutes.
