Carrot Cake Trifle

Ingredients:

  1. 1 box Betty Crocker carrot cake mix prepared according to package directions into a 9x13 cake
  2. 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  3. 3/4 cup butter softened
  4. 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  5. 1 tablespoon vanilla
  6. 16 ounces Cool Whip
  7. 1 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions:
  • Prepare the carrot cake and bake according to the package directions for a 9x13 cake. Allow the cake to cool, then cut it into cubes.
  • Using an electric mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese, scraping down the sides as needed, until the mixture is light and fluffy. This will take about 2-3 minutes. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar, 1/2 a cup at a time, until it is thoroughly mixed. Add the vanilla and beat the frosting on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Gently fold in the Cool Whip until it is completely mixed in.
