What You'll Need
- 1 (21.41-ounce) package carrot cake mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 large eggs
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 cup confectioners' sugar
What to Do
To Make Cakes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine cake mix (see Note), oil, water, and eggs; beat well. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets about 2 inches apart. (Since "cakes" will be baked in batches, refrigerate batter until ready to place on baking sheets.)
- Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cakes cool slightly then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
To Make Cream Cheese Filling
- In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until fluffy.
- Beat in confectioners' sugar 1 cup at a time until smooth.
- Turn half the cooled cakes over onto their rounded sides and spread a dollop of filling over them. Place the other half of the cakes on top of the filling, forming sandwiches. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Before You Start Cooking!
- Note: If your carrot cake mix comes with a packet of shredded carrots, make sure to add it to the batter!

In Amish culture, land is usually kept within the family. However, what's interesting, is that it is the youngest son, as opposed to the eldest child, who inherits the land.
