Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing and Walnuts

This is a favorite of mine because I really like the spice taste and the cream cheese icing together.

A lot of restaurants and bake shops decorate this cake with crushed walnuts around the edge. This not only adds to the decorative presentation it adds to the flavor that is achieved.
