- Add the date paste into the large bowl as the carrots, date paste, and grated carrots.
- Add the remaining ingredients to the same large bowl and start mixing it all together.
- Take the mixture and shape it into a one-layered cake (e.g. can be rectangular or circular).
- Place the one-layered cake onto a dehydrator sheet for at least 8 hours (but no more than 12 hours) to dehydrate. Ensure the temperature is set to 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
- While the cake is dehydrating, take all of the frosting's ingredients, and blend it in a bowl.
- Proceed to put the bowl's now blended contents into the refrigerator.
- When the cake is done setting and the frosting's consistency is just right for you, then spread the frosting on the cake.
- Take the nutmeg and sprinkle it on the frosting that's on the cake.
- Cut the cake into slices and enjoy.
