My sister is having a baby! And I am having a CUPCAKE!
Ohhh yeah. Babies and cupcakes. Things are about to get awesome.
I hosted a baby shower for my sister this last weekend because I like to try to defy reality by hosting baby showers in my small new house after moving in roughly ten days ago. Boxes shoved in closets, nothing on the walls, and people and presents and flowers galore. Lovely. Juuust lovely.
Okay actually, it was lovely. And if I had one fraction of a thing to do with the cuteness of the baby shower, it was my contribution of carrot cake cupcakes. Which are life-changingly, hate to say it, but, moist, and will forever be a part of my baby shower recipe repertoire. Remember Ang’s shower years ago? Same cupcakes. Same deliciousness. Same cream cheese frosting in my hair for weeks.
In the next few days I’ll share some pics from the real shower including of my sister’s baby boy belly which will probably melt your face off. Is that exploitative? Please friends, come back to see pictures of my sister’s adorable (clothed) belly. Not weird at all. Mmmhm.
For today, you get this recipe, which is basically the whole reason I hosted the shower. I mean, babies are cute and everything, but CUPCAKES.
With CREAM CHEESE FROSTING.
These are the best carrot cake cupcakes I’ve ever had! With a cream cheese frosting, of course. Perfect for dessert or brunch!
