I have never tried making these myself before and these turned out very well. Recipe was a lot simpler than I thought it would be. Cream cheese, butter and flour. That's it! Second time I made them, I wanted to go for a low fat version and used fat-free cream cheese and low fat butter. Taste was the same but the texture came out a little rubbery. It's an ok sacrifice to enjoy these with a little less guilt that way. I didnt make the walnut filling and just bought canned filling in Poppyseed, Apricot and Rasberry.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting
I wanted to make double the amount of frosting so I just planned on doubling everything. Upon doing so, as I started to put in the sugar, it just seemed like an awful lot of sugar to add. Seeing as I was doubling it, that called for 8 cups of sugar. After I put 4 cups in, I tasted it and it was just right so I did not add the final 4 cups. If putting in the whole amount of sugar, it would have been way too sweet. Alter that little bit and it it's a perfect recipe. Also, I used that new "Whipped" cream cheese spread thats available instead of normal cream cheese but it tastes the same. Good job, excellent recipe that I will keep!

Best Carrot Cake Ever
This was the first carrot cake I ever tried to make. I partnered it with the recipe "Cream Cheese Frosting II" from this sight. The cake was simply fantastic!!! Listening to some of the other reviews on here, I only put half a cup of oil (canola) and did not drain the pineapple juice out. It turned out perfectly being the equal of the best carrot cake I have ever had. As others said, its a lot of work but well worth it!
