carrot cake cupcakes

I am probably one of the few people that touts carrot cake as their favorite. In fact, when I spent my third birthday in Disney World and my mom asked what kind of cake I wanted, I told her carrot cake. A three year old asking for carrot cake? Unheard of. I don't know really know what it is about it that I love so much, but I just do. Maybe it's the carrots {one of my favorite vegetables} in a cake that is loaded with cinnamon and paired with a rich cream cheese frosting that is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy.

Even though I love it so much, I've actually never made it before until this past weekend when I thought it would be a nice early birthday treat to myself. I used this recipe from Martha Stewart and they were wonderful. Perfectly moist cupcakes with a smooth and creamy frosting. I definitely recommend trying these out {because I promise carrot cake is really good}!

  1. Carrot cake is my favorite too!! And my hubby's! It's funny because my mom made me a carrot cake for my first birthday thinking it was all "healthy" and wanted me to be a healthy child. Well out of my two siblings, I'm the one with the biggest sweet tooth. And funny enough carrot cake is my fav. Those cupcakes look delish!
