  2. In a large mixing bowl & with a hand mixer, beat together eggs & oil, mixing well. Add 1 cup of the sugar & continue mixing for 2 minutes, then add the remaining sugar & mix for 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. In another container, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg, then add this to the egg mixture, beating on low speed until blended, about 1 minute.
  4. Add carrots, walnuts & pineapple, mixing until well combined.
  5. Divide batter among the prepared pans & bake 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. On a wire rack cool to room temperature, then run a knife around the edge of the cakes & remove them from the pans, before wrapping in plastic wrap & refrigerating them overnight.

  8. Add butter a little at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl, then add the zest & beat until combined.
  9. Remove cakes from the refrigerator, then ice the top of one layer, place the 2nd layer on top of that & ice the top of that layer. Place the 3rd layer on top & ice the top & sides of the cake.
  10. Press chopped walnuts into the sides of the cake & ENJOY!
