Bake 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans 10 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool cakes completely.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Prepare using Philadelphia Light Brick Cream Cheese Spread and Cool Whip Light Whipped Topping.
If using a carrot cake mix that does not include a carrot/raisin packet, omit hot water. Beat cake mix, 1 cup cold water, pumpkin, oil and eggs in large bowl with mixer until blended. Pour into prepared pans; continue as directed.
For best results, cut thin slice off top of one cake to level cake; discard trimmed piece or reserve for snacking. Place trimmed cake layer, cut-side down, on serving plate. Spread with icing, then cover with remaining cake layer and continue as directed.
