Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I am a huge Zucchini Bread fan!  If I had to chose between pumpkin and zucchini bread, it would always be zucchini!   Plain Zucchini Bread, Chocolate Zucchini Bread, it doesn’t matter.  I love it all.  So it was a no brainer when I saw this Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting on Pinterest.  Zucchini bread and cream cheese frosting???  Heck yah!  And it was goooo-oood!
