Amelia's Carrot Cupcakes, with Recipe

Jenn asked if I could make Amelia some cupcakes for her 4th birthday! Amelia asked for Carrot Cake!! Jenn was like " I don't even think she has ever HAD Carrot Cake" Jenn did all the hard work of getting me the raisins, shredding the carrots, getting the wrappers and carrot decoration for the top for me. I just baked them haha

It sounds like they were a big hit at the party 3/14/2015.

It was spring themed. Aren't these the CUTEST cupcake wrappers??

Ta dah!!

Jenn found a recipe from Taste of Home for me to make. I used a different frosting- it tasted like straight up pumpkin roll filling. 

1 cup Raisins
2 cups Flour
2 cups packed Brown Sugar
3/4 cup Vegetable oil
4 Eggs
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
3 cups grated Carrots

2- 8oz packages of Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Butter
3 cups Powdered Sugar
2-3 teaspoons Vanilla


  1. Toss raisins with 2 tablespoons flour; set aside. In a large, beat the brown sugar, oil and eggs until well blended. In another large bowl, combine the baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and remaining flour; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended. Stir in carrots and reserved raisins.
  2. Pour batter into lined cupcake tins, 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean,
  3. For frosting, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and beat til incorporated. Spread over cupcakes. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 24 cupcakes
