CRACKED UP CARROT CAKE

This is a wonderful recipe made in a tube pan, but I inverted the tube pan when the cake had not cooled completely - hence the crumbled version.

Suggest make the cake and filling the same day, chill overnight.
Split cake into 3 layers, fill with filling, then freeze cake.
Frost cake with cream cheese mixture on top and sides when cake is still frozen.
