Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cardamom Cream Cheese Frosting

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cardamom Cream Cheese Frosting

3 kinds of cupcakes in less than 2 weeks?! Good thing I made them all for other people, otherwise I’d be 10 pounds heavier by now. I feel like I should just start taking orders – anyone want some cupcakes?

One of her favorite cake flavors is carrot cake, so I wanted to make sure I did them right for her. I headed over to one of my favorite blogs, Cupcake Project, which always has fantastic cupcake recipes. This one was labeled “unforgettably moist” so I knew I was on the right track. Plus, cardamom cream cheese frosting sounded like a great twist on classic flavors.
