Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens).

Mix the eggs, oil, water and Carrot Cake Mix gently together and whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy. Then fold through the cinnamon, orange zest and pecans.

Pour the mixture evenly into your two greased cake tins.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 23-28 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean, then cool on a wire rack.

Ice one cake with ½ tub of Cream Cheese flavoured frosting and then sandwich together with the other half cake. Cover the outside of the cake with the remaining frosting. Using the palette knife gently create swirls on the top and sides (gently press the palette knife into the icing and bring the knife round in a curve and a flick to create the swirl).

Dust the top with cinnamon and the orange zest.
