3.  Place the yam (and possibly pumpkin) on a baking sheet and in the oven. Let bake for 20-30 minutes, or until completely soft.

5. Take a cloth soaked in coconut oil and grease the pan. 

6. Grate the carrot and set aside. 

7. Take a large bowl and mix together the eggs, coconut oil, honey, pumpkin puree and yam puree. 

8. Now add in the flour, carrots, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder. 

9. Pour the mixture into the greased pan and bake for about 30 minutes. 

10. Allow to cool all of the way and then frost.
