Shred carrots using a cheese grater.

Chop walnuts with a large knife.

Beat eggs in a stand mixer on high speed until they have turned frothy. When the eggs are done, reduce the mixer speed and gradually add in oil. Change the mixer speed to low and add the sugar and the salt.

Now it is time to combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl and then add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture.

Now, fold in the grated carrots and the walnuts.

Bake and allow to cool when done.

To make the frosting beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar until it is creamy and spreadable.

Fill a piping bag with the frosting and decorate the carrot cake bars any way you wish.
