CUPCAKEAGE

carrot cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting

So I made these cupcakes from a recipe at Smitten Kitchen and let me tell you, they were awesome. Super moist and really tasty. I doubled the amount of spices she used the second batch I made, and added some mixed spice for good measure and my tastebuds were very appreciative.

The icing still needs work.

I'm not sure I like the frosting that came with the recipe, it totally needs lemon juice in it, and possibly more icing sugar because when it sets it basically IS cream cheese, and I struggle with that. The texture is so... rubbery... will experiment more sometime in the future...

no that's the PERFECT cream cheese icing, but with lemon.

They look beautiful!
