Carrot Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting (Gluten Free)

Here is a delicious little cake that was a success when I took it to my local Needlework Group...Carrot Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting...using a commercial Gluten Free Flour...

Magazine from this issue of Better Homes and Gardens (November 2007)...

Pecan nuts are in this recipe...I just love the scent of nuts roasting on the pan...

The look of the mix...

All baked...
