For the sponge cake:
Beat the eggs with the sugar. When whipped, little by little add the oil and continue with the grated carrot. Next add the walnuts, salt, sodium bicarbonate, the baking powder and the sifted flour. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 180 Cº. Cool and then chill.
For the mousse:
In a food processor blend the cheese with the sugar. When a smooth mixture is obtained, add the previously
hydrated in water gelatin sheets and then fold in the milk. Once mixed, add the whipped cream. Place in a pastry bag and chill.
For the sweet carrot cream:
Cook the carrot in water and blend with syrup. Strain, and place in a condiment bottle.
For the sweet carrot strips:
Peel the yellow and orange carrots and cut them into strips with help of a meat slicer. Blanch in hot water, chill with iced water and leave to rest in a sweet syrup.
To assembly: Place the quantity of carrot cream that you like, cut a rectangle of cake and place on top, and top with the mousse cloud. To the side of this, place the ice cream, decorate with the sweetened carrot strips and mint sprouts.
