Unsalted butter or margarine

Are you using unsalted butter.  If you are using salted butter then of course it will taste salty.

Best carrot cake

I made this cake last week for work and everyone wanted the recipe. It was so good, I made it again this weekend and it was even better. This is the only carrot cake recipe I will ever use again.

Cream Cheese Frosting

I will make the cream cheese frosting again, but without the butter/margarine. Seem like the margarine made the frosting salty. Anyone has a suggestion.
