Last Saturday, I've made Moist Carrot Cake for my little nephew birthday party guests.

Here is the recipe:-
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp ground cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/4 cups oil
1 cup granulated white sugar (gula pasir can do)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
3 cups grated carrots
1 cup nuts (pecans @ walnuts) - optional
1 cup raisins - optional
Cream Cheese Frosting (A):
250g cream cheese (any brand), softened
1/4 - 1/2 cup of dutch lady sweetened condensed milk
Cream Cheese Frosting (B):
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Prepare 2 of 9' pans or one 12' cake pan or one 9' x 13 sheet pan.
2. Mix together all ingredients (A) in a bowl.
3. In a bigger bowl, whisk together eggs and all ingredients (B) about a minute or so.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixtures and mix about 2 mins or more.

Test for doneness by inserting a skewer, it should be dry when taken out. Cool then fill and frost with the cream cheese (you can choose any of the recipe either A or B) frosting. Can garnish with more nuts or grated cheddar (your preference).
7. To make the Cream Cheese Frosting:-
