Here's one from valentino, who really knows how to bake a cake! He has a super-special layered version too, which you can find through an Anytime search.

i dont put butter or lemon juice in my icing, just cream cheese and icing sugar and a little vanilla essence, also have chopped really fine raw rhubarb and used it instead of carrot, yummy as well.
