  3. In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, powdered sugar, and eggs and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the oil and whisk to combine.
  5. Add the vanilla, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and shredded carrots and stir with a spatula to combine.
  6. Make the cheesecake: In a separate large bowl, whisk together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
