Keto Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

I made this cake two layers for pictures. Because I did that, the recipe below is doubled for two layers. If you want to make a one-layer cake, just half all of the ingredients and the net carbs. You can substitute the golden monk fruit sweetener and erythritol for one of your choice, but be sure to reference a conversion chart. If you decide to experiment and change up the recipe, let me know what you tried, and how it turned out!
