Wash the carrots, peel and grate on a fine grater. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, vegetable oil, sugar and vanilla extract. Beat the resulting mixture until smooth and airy. 

Add the sifted flour mixed with cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and a pinch of salt to the egg mixture. Mix until smooth, then stir in the chopped nuts and carrots. Grease a baking dish with oil. 

Bake the cake for 40-50 minutes at 170-180 degrees. In a separate bowl, beat butter with powdered sugar and curd cheese until a light and airy cream is formed. Cut the cooled cake into two parts, make a layer of cream and cover the entire surface of the cake with it.
