CARROT CAKE CUPCAKES {CREAM CHEESE FROSTING}

The cupcakes turned out excellent! People at work were practically fighting over them. I will concur with the other reviewers who said this recipe makes WAY TOO MUCH frosting.

I doubled the batch because it says it only makes 12 cupcakes, but I actually ended up with close to 50, which I thought I was generously frosting until I was done and there was still a full two cups of frosting left!!! And I didn’t double the frosting recipe! I also didn’t have any orange extract so I put a dot of lemon extract in and it gave the frosting a nice citrusy flavor without being overpowering.



I put an entire 20 oz can of crushed pineapple (which I drained, but not very well) in the cake batter because I didn’t feel like wasting it. I will make these again, but maybe not so many!
