Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Lightly grease donut pans.
Grate carrots and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oil with egg and vanilla.
Then whisk in sugars and sour cream until smooth.
Add the flours, spices, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until smooth.
Then fold in carrots.
Put batter into a piping bag. Cut the tip of the bag so you have a 1/2 inch opening. Then pipe out the batter into donut pans.
Bake for 10 minutes.
As the donuts cool, make your glaze.
For the cream cheese frosting, use soft ingredients. You can use a hand mixer or a strong spatula for this. Mix the butter and cream cheese until no lumps remain. Then add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth and creamy. Spread over cooled donuts and decorate with any remaining carrot shreds or gold foil.
For ganache, warm the cream and then pour over the white chocolate chips. Let it sit for 30 seconds, then stir until smooth. Dip the cooled donuts into ganache and put on parchment to set. Decorate as you wish.
