(Make sure the carrots are grated before using them in the recipe, as well as chopping the almonds).
Mix all ingredients together and bake in a 9x13-inch pan or in small cupcake holders (spray Pam butter-like spray) for 45 minutes on 350 degrees. If using oil instead of apple sauce, allow to cook one hour.
Whip frosting ingredients together. Wait till cool to frost.
To entice my daughter to eat them I put orange and yellow sprinkles on it, or you could also decorate it with little frosting carrots . Have fun with this cake; it's very versatile and good for you. You can use all of the optional toppings as well if you'd like. You can reference the other cake here.
On a side note, this frosting is also good with some sugar free fat free vanilla or cheesecake pudding, and also makes a great dipping sauce for apples.
