Cinnamony Carrot Cake

I've been meaning to post this for a while- a very simple and flavorful carrot cake with a subtle carrot flavor and just enough spice!

1 package yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
2 cups shredded carrots
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Heat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, water, butter, and eggs in a large bowl. Beat as directed on cake package. Stir in carrots and cinnamon. Pour batter into greased 13 x 9 pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool completely.

Frosting:
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 sour cream
3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Combine sugar, butter, sour cream, and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Spread on cake when cooled.
