This yummy recipe yields 8 cups or 10 - 16 servings; one small piece goes a long way!  Can be made one or two days in advance and kept refrigerated.  The malleable consistency of this carrot cake will allow you to make it into any shape.  Make a traditional looking 2 layer round cake with frosting between layers, or get creative and shape it into the form of a Christmas tree or start on a large platter.
 
Frosting
===========================
2 cups unsoaked raw cashews
8-13 medjool dates pitted (not soaked)

 In blender blend cashews with enough water to allow blender to run.  When smooth, add in dates until sweet enough.  Add in vanilla.
