To make the carrot cake...
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9" x 13" cake pan. Place the cake mix in large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center & add 1-1/2 cups vegetable oil, 3 eggs, and 3 cups grated carrots. Mix until ingredients are well blended. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake at 350° for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake, in the pan, on a wire rack. When cool, frost with a cream-cheese frosting or dust with confectioner's sugar.
