Default Phase 2 carrot cake recipe?

I have almond flour that I would like to make carrot cake with, but can't seem to find a good recipe for one. Has anyone come across a good SB carrot cake? My mom and I just bought some xylitol powdered sugar we'd like to try for icing, but we need something to put it on!! Thank you for helping us with our carrot cake needs!

So this is one I found, won't have a chance to try it until next weekend though. Ingredients:

2 cups almond flour
up to a cup of splenda (a cup was a little too sweet)
1 cup grated carrots
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp cloves
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter (replace with ICBINB)
3 eggs at room temperature, separated
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup of chopped nuts (opt)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter with splenda and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add yolks one at a time. Add dry ingredients. Beat egg whites until firm peaks form and fold into rest of ingredients. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.

I also don't know the nutritional facts for this recipe.

Sugar Free Cream Cheese Icing

3 blocks of 1/3 less fat cream cheese (aka Neufchatel Cheese), softened
1 pkt sugar free vanilla instant pudding
2% milk (or FF 1/2 n' 1/2)
nutmeg to taste

Whip the cream cheese and SF vanilla pudding mix together. Add enough 2% milk to make it fluffy, then add nutmeg to taste. This makes a thick icing, heavy enough to pipe borders around a cake, but not thick enough to create icing flowers. To make it runnier, you can try using more milk or cut it in 1/2 and add extra milk.

This is the one I found on here. They didn't post any nutritional facts about this though. I love carrot cake too! Have a happy birthday!
