I've heard you can just simply add two cups of carrots to a spice cake mix and it's delic.

I just made a carrot cake, using carrot cake mix (but I strained out the "carrot flavored pieces") and added 2 cups of shredded carrots and it was yummy!!! Oh I also always add a box of pudding to my cakes to make them more dense.

I did a wedding cake a few years ago with this mix recipe by Kraft:

I used my own buttercream recipe for icing though, was scared of decorating with the cream cheese icing.

Everyone loved it and thought it was completely by scratch.
