Carrot Cake taste like a scratch cake!

Oldie but extreme goodie! Carrot Cake. They'll never know it starts with a mix! Perfect anytime and I like to think it's healthier since it's made with a vegetable  ( smiling) !  Enjoy!

Carrot Cake taste like a scratch cake!

1 pkg of spice cake or carrot cake mix
2 cups of shredded carrots
1 8oz can of crushed pineapple drained

1/2 cup of shredded coconut (I like mine toasted, just spread on parchment paper and put in the oven on 350 degree until browned)
1/4 chopped finely chopped raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans set aside

1 8oz tub of whipped topping
2 pkg of cream cheese
2 cups of confectionery sugar

Heat oven to 350*. Make cake as directed on package stirring in carrots and drained pineapple. 
Note: If you love pecans or walnuts and raisins, fold in 1/2 cup of each at this step

Pour into a 13x9 pan that has been greased. (You can also use two 8 inch well greased cake pans. Fill between layers with frosting and toppings) Bake 25 minutes. Cool.

Beat cream cheese and sugar with a mixer until well blended, add whipped topping.

Spread over cooled cake and top with mixture of nuts, coconut and raisins. Keep refrigerated.
