    Steve_G's Note:

    A very large, moist, carrot cake that will feed a crowd. Get used to shreading carrots as you'll be asked to make this over and over again.

      Great cake! I made this same cake after finding it on another recipe web site. It is absolutely incredible. The only thing I found different in your recipe is the last step in which you say to "fill with lightly sweetwened cream cheese filling and frost with butter cream frosting". How do you "fill" the cake? Additionally, I left out the raisins, just because I don't care for them and I used an Allspice Cream Cheese frosting. Each time I've made this cake I've had lots of requests for the recipe. It truly is scrumptious.

      Hi CC, the filling is the 'frosting' that goes between the layers.....
