Carrot Sheet Cake

I love baking in the fall. My kitchen smells amazing and the spices in the air make my heart happy :)

This Carrot Sheet Cake is amazing! It is super moist, full of flavor and the cream cheese frosting is perfection.

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy carrot cake- so why not transform it in to a much simpler sheet cake?! This dessert feeds a crowd and is really easy to make! Plus, kids won’t even know you snuck in a veggie ;)

    Carrot cake is one of my favorite things on EARTH! And so is cream cheese frosting! I love that there's almost as much frosting as cake on yours...I would hog this and devour it! Pinned!
