1 c. sugar
3/4 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium, beat sugar, oil and eggs until light. Stir in flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt until well combined. Gently stir carrots and sunflower seeds into batter. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Transfer pan to wire rack; cool completely. Spread uncut bars with prepared cream cheese frosting. Drag a fork through the frosting on a diagonal to decorate. Cut into 2-inch squares; remove from pan. Divide remaining frosting among 2 small bowls; tint green and orange. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a small star tip with green frosting; pipe carrot tops on top of each square. Fill a clean pastry bag fitting with a small writing tip with orange frosting; pipe small carrot shapes below each green top.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
1. Be sure to clean the fork often when dragging it through the frosting. If the frosting is too soft to create the design, place the pan in the refrigerator and chill for 10 minutes.
Slice the bars into thin pieces and arrange orange and green sprinkles in the shape of carrots for another twist on this sweet decoration.
