Carrot Cake Cupcakes
Packer Party….Dessert Stat!
I took the standard carrot cake box mix. Followed the directions but substituted a 4 oz. jar of carrot baby food for the oil. I then added about 3/4 cup brandy soaked raisins, 1 finely chopped carrot and 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh pineapple. This made 2 dozen cupcakes.
I then took a can of store bought cream cheese frosting mix and whipped in a cup of heavy whipping cream (beaten separately and added) and juice of 1/2 a lime. Use a pastry bag to apply the frosting.
For garnish, I made some caramel and poured onto a pan lined with parchment paper sprayed with cooking spray. Broke off small pieces and topped each cupcake. I really need to stop watching Cupcake Wars!
