DIRECTIONS

  • CAKE:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger.
  • Mix well.
  • Slowly add the orange juice and oil and mix until well blended.
  • Once this batter is well blended, add the carrots, raisins, coconut and orange zest.
  • Blend well.
  • Pour the batter evenly into 2 cake pans (9 inch) which have been well coated with Baker's Joy or similar coating spray with flour.
  • Bake at 250 degrees for 45-50 minutes (this allows the cakes to rise more evenly by using the lower temp). They are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out cleanly.
  • Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.
  • Transfer the first layer to your cake plate and top that layer with about 1 cup of frosting.
  • Place the 2nd layer on top and ice cake with the remaining frosting.
  • Garnish with chopped walnuts and orange curls.
  • Chill if not serving immediately.
  • FROSTING:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and butter and whip for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add the orange juice, orange extract and orange zest and mix well.
  • Slowly add the confectioners sugar, 2 cups at a time and mix well between additions.
  • Once the frosting has reached a good spreading consistency, frost your cake according to the directions.
