Carrot Cakes

Carrot Cake:
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
4 large eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
4 cups grated carrot
1 cup walnuts
Beat sugar, oil, and eggs until blended.
Sift together flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.
Mix flour mixture into egg mixture. Stir in carrot and walnuts. Bake at 350 for around 30 mins.
I baked mine in small ring molds but it can be made in 9" round pans and layered.
Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 1/2 lbs cream cheese, room temp
1 cup powdered sugar (you can add more if you want a sweeter frosting)
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp cinnamon
1 vanilla bean, seeded
Beat together cheese, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla bean seeds. Beat in cream and beat until fluffy.
Pineapple Raisin Compote:
1 pineapple diced
1 cup raisins
1 cups brown sugar
Mix all ingredients together.
