Carrot Cake

This cake is super moist! I made it for my Bunko ladies and it was a hit! Even people who don't like coconut love this. I usually process the coconut and the walnuts in my small food processor. I use my large processor for grating the carrots. Don't forget the yummy cream cheese frosting, store bought doesn't hold a candle to homemade! :)
