Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 - 8" cake pans OR 1 - 9" x 13" pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl combine dry ingredients, stir to combine. In a medium mixing bowl add shredded zucchini, melted/cooled coconut oil, eggs, water and vanilla, blend fully using a mixer on medium speed. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until fully blended. Pour into greased pan(s). Bake 9" x 13" for 35-40 minutes OR 8" cake pans for 24-28 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

To prepare frosting: Place cream cheese, 4 T. heaving whipping cream and cinnamon in a deep bowl, using a whisk attachment on mixer whisk together until fully blended.

Add enough heaving whipping cream to get desired frosting consistency and the amount of powdered sugar to desired sweetness. Once the cake has cooled completely it's ready to frost.
