These carrot cake cupcakes taste as amazing as they look! As a special treat for our Friday Family Night, I baked a dozen regular sized cupcakes and six large ones. The family loved them!
Ordinarily, I would only bake the standard two layer cake with this recipe. I guess I just wanted to try something a little different and I’m certainly glad I did. The rest of the family was definitely okay with it too.
The recipe I used was the Better Homes and Gardens Carrot Cake Recipe. Be sure to use freshly shredded carrots if you decide to try it and if you’re so inclined, add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts.
The cream cheese frosting I make includes 8 oz Philly cream cheese, 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 stick of margarine, 4 cups of powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring.
If you’re planning a birthday party, baby shower or some other special event, remember this recipe. It’s worth a try.
