Very moist, two layer carrot cake with frosting, but no nuts. By the way: baked goods should not have nuts in them.

The main challenge is pulling from the oven at the right time. I usually need to rely on the toothpick test more than the timer but it usually comes out great.

  1. ==Cake==
  2. Wipe bottoms and sides of two 8-inch-round cake pans with margarine.
  3. Dust cake pans with 1T flour each.

  10. In mixer, mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla until smooth.
  11. Mix in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until frosting becomes light in consistency.
