Its cheating because I used a box of nut bread mix that I had on hand and wanted to use before it expired instead of making cake batter and because I just dusted the top with powdered sugar instead of making cream cheese frosting. Its still carrot cake and the teens didn't need forks to share it around the dungeon on D&D night.
