I suppose I am putting the icing before the cake. I've already baked the Carrot Cake from RHC, but it was for a dairy free cake, so I've never actually made the Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting...hence the reason I've signed up to do my second version of the carrot cake.
As far as the frosting goes...it's simplicity in a nutshell. Take the butter, cream cheese, and creme fraiche (I splurged) and process, then add the melted white chocolate (cooled). Now simplicity is becoming a challenge for me these days. Take for instance adding the white chocolate while no longer warm but fluid... it is very, very cold here...

I added vanilla since there were no beans in my chocolate:
I did nuke some of the frosting remnants and it did improve the texture -- unfortunately this was after most of it ended up on the cake. I will be making both the frosting and cake again.
