    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3 cups grated carrots

    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    2 cups confectioners' sugar
    1/2 cup flaked coconut
