    Welcome to the forum @Rose Paladino :)

    I do know of a carrot cake recipe that does just that - here it is:

    https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/7900/the-ultimate-makeover-carrot-cake

    I haven't tried it myself, but when I first saw it it stuck in my mind. I think you'd have better luck with a recipe designed this way instead of trying to convert an existing recipe. Carrot cake is notoriously damp and heavy!

    On a personal note I always prefer lemon zest in the frosting instead of orange - it's more refreshing, and would certainly work well in a lighter cake.
