Preheat the oven to 180 ºC and spray a 2 litre ring cake tin with non-stick spray and dust with cake flour. Sift the dry ingredients together. Beat the sweetener, eggs and oil together and add the orange juice, bran and carrots. Add the dry ingredients and mix. Turn the batter into the cake tin, spreading evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until done. Leave to cool in the cake tin for 30 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Blend all the ingredients for the icing except the gelatine. Melt the gelatine over boiling water or in the microwave oven and stir into the cottage cheese mixture a little at a time. Leave until firmer before spreading over the cake. Makes one medium-sized ring cake.
