Step 1: Prepare pans
Line the bottom of the pans with parchment paper. Then grease the paper and dust it with flour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Mix
Use a hand mixer to combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing bowl.
Step 3: Add ingredients
Mix in the vegetable oil and eggs until blended, and then add the carrots.
Add 1½ cups chopped pecans to give flavor and crunch to the cake.
Step 4: Pour batter
Pour the batter into the pans and bake for 40 minutes. Then remove the pans from the oven and let the cake cool before frosting.
Step 5: Make frosting
Mix together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla in the other mixing bowl to make the frosting.
Step 6: Frost the cake
Frost each layer of cake using the spatula. Carefully stack the cakes on the cake stand. Smooth the frosting on the top and sides of the cake, cut with the cake knife, and serve.
