My Favorite Carrot Cake With Magic Topping

“I got this recipe from my Aunt, who was a terrific cook. She raised 11 kids and did catering at her church and for weddings. she has passed on many favorite recipes to my family but this is one that no matter where I take it everybody loves it. The cake is very moist and the topping is totally different from the traditional creme cheese frosting most people use. Feel free to use creme cheese frosting (I do sometimes)but give the magic topping a whirl I don't think you will be disappointed.”
