This week I baked something that I would never choose to eat but something I have been asked to do quite a few times. I thought it was about time I made them and I had all the ingredients to hand so it felt like it was just time to attempt some carrot cupcakes.
Carrot cake has always been a bit odd to me as I don’t really understand why people put vegetables in cake but I take my hat off to the first people who gave it ago and came up with the idea.
I was looking forward to have a try of the cream cheese frosting because everyone I have spoken to about carrot cakes/cupcakes had said that the frosting was amazing. On paper I have to agree, the ingredients make it sounds heavenly but taste is always the key.
These cupcakes were made on a lazy Sunday afternoon which I think is a great time to bake. You have nothing to do but you’re not looking to do anything to energetic as it is Sunday and that means back to work on Monday.
Whenever I make cakes, no matter what kind I always take some to work and give some to my boyfriend. It has defiantly become a thing at work when I arrive with a tin as everyone knows that there will be cake.
I liked making these cupcakes because they are made differently from other cupcakes I have done. I did try the frosting once the cupcakes had been iced and I have to say the frosting is good, it makes me want to put cream cheese frosting on all my cupcakes from now on. (Don’t worry I won’t).
