Carrot Cake

This is Billy's birthday cake. The recipe is from his mom and he gets it every year. I don't use walnuts ever but it is always a huge hit.

4 eggs
1 1/4 c. oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinammon
3 cups carrots, grated
pinch of salt
Beat together eggs, oil, vanilla. Mix in separate bowl the sugar, soda, and cinammon. Add to oil mixture and blend. Mix in carrots and a pinch of salt.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
Let cool before frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 package cream cheese, softened
1 cube margarine, softened
1 box powdered sugar
(optional walnuts)
Cream together cream cheese and margarine. Add in powdered sugar and walnuts until well-blended. Frost on cooled cake.
