Simply Delicious Carrot Cake and Dreamy Cream Cheese Frosting

A friend requested a carrot cake for his wife's birth day. I was so nervous, as I am known for my cakes, but I had never made one. I found this recipe in a cookbook that my MIL's church had put together as a missions fund raiser. It was such a hit, that I have made it for the same couple repeatedly and we enjoy it on special occasions with our family as well.
