Surprisingly, Carrot Cupcakes are one of my top dessert posts from this site. I’ve finally decided to give them another go and retake the photos!
Show of hands, who planted carrots in their garden only to realize that no one in the family eats them??
No one? Just me?
Darn the luck that our carrots would be one of our most successful plants in the garden. I let my little guy talk me into picking up some seeds this spring and thought that nothing would come of it. Lo and behold, here we are mid August and these little things are going crazy! Did I mention I even planted them in a pot? Not the ground… a POT. A tiny one. Which means our carrots are growing into some interesting shapes.
Not being one that likes to let things go to waste I’ve quickly come up with a few recipes that are going to kick off my fall baking! Kicking things off are these delicious carrot cake cupcakes! I posted the recipe a while back ages ago (when my site was practically a baby) and it’s steadily been in my top posts, especially around fall. I think it’s due to the pretty floral piped frosting and NOT from the random bits of candy I had thrown about. >insert embarrassed face here<
Regardless, the cake is delicious and one you should try. Top it with a vanilla frosting or try my personal favorite… Cream cheese! Even if you aren’t a carrot lover you are going to want to devour one or two (or ten) of these little beauts. So, what do you think? Is it too early for fall recipes?
