Where I live, spring doesn’t seem to exist for more than a few days at a time. We get a mix of winter and summer back and forth until summer sticks around for a while. Last week, it snowed four inches one day, and by the next afternoon it was nice enough to enjoy a family party outdoors.
One of my favorite moments at the party was watching my little cousin enjoy one of these cupcakes. I wish that I had been able to snap a picture. As she held a mini cupcake in her hands, she proceeded to lick the frosting off the top before biting into the cake.
These carrot cake cupcakes are all about spring. They are light and moist, with just enough orange in the frosting to add a bit of citrus sunshine. I like that they have enough carrots so they don’t disappear while they bake. They are a breeze to mix together, and can be in the oven in no time.
