  1. This is quite possibly the BEST frosting I’ve ever had. I already made two back to back carrot cakes with the frosting. Once I take a bite I just cannot stop and keep going back for another “sliver”. I’m hooked! 🙂

  2. Not missing the dairy!
    I whipped this up in my Nutribullet and it came out creamy and smooth. It doesn’t have the sour flavor that cream cheese does but it tastes GREAT!

  3. I’m so happy that I can have a vegan carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for my birthday! Coconut cream isn’t avaiable where I live. Could I use homemade coconut yogurt instead of coconut cream? Any other sub? thx!

    1. Yay! So glad you can too 🙂 Unfortunately coconut cream is an important ingredient in this recipe to keep in thick and creamy. You could try more cashews and a little more coconut oil to substitute it but I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t say how it would turn out. Let me know how you go!

      1. I found out that it’s so easy to make coconut creme! The frosting came out great; very smooth and just the right sweetness!!! I’ll leave a review and tag the cake on Instagram!

  4. Hello, this looks great. We have a a child with cashew allergies. Can you substitute something for the cashews?


    1. Hi Maria, hmmm…I personally haven’t made it with anything else because the cashews give it that nice thick and creamy consistency. You could try macadamias, but the taste and texture won’t be the same. Let me know how you go if you give it a try 🙂

  5. Maša, your timing could not have been better. I signed up to bring a vegan dessert for a going-away potluck at work Tuesday. I know one of the two honoree likes carrot cake. This can be made today and will be well set up by Tuesday. Thanks!
