Botio's Carrot Cake

Ok, so I haven't made this recipe yet. But it comes from a trusted source. In fact, it comes from the Master Chef and God of Cooking: Botio! He can make anything taste good.

Botio's Carrot Cake

2 c sifted all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 c grated carrots
1 ½ c vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 c chopped nuts

1 8 oz softened cream cheese
¾ c softened butter
1 16 oz box confection sugar
1 c chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 325. Combine flour, soda, and cinnamon. Set aside. Combine all other cake ingredients, and then add dry ingredients. Stir with electric mixer at medium for about 3 minutes. Grease and flour 2 9-inch pans. Bake 40-50 minutes. Check with toothpick to see when it is done. Your baking time may vary.

Cool thoroughly* before icing. For icing combine and beat thoroughly with electric mixer.

*I put put the cooled cake in the freezer and frost it later. This makes it very easy to frost and handle.
