Sounds like a great carrot cake! But how can it be a cream cheese frosting without cream cheese?!

hahaha I was wondering that too! When I reposted it I thought, this can't be right, and went back to the Taste of Georgetown page to make sure...but yup, that's what it says. Maybe we should make it and see how it tastes...but your favorite cream cheese frosting recipe would work just fine too I'm sure!

Sorry! The Georgetown Bid left out the cream cheese on the recipe, I will have them correct it. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
