Carrot Cake Mini Cupcakes

I wanted to do something special for my girlfriend who just had a cute baby boy.  One of her favorite desserts is carrot cake which until now I never really understood.  Savory foods showing up in desserts is weird.  My girlfriend and her husband have been calling their baby Carrot so I thought carrot cake mini cupcakes were the perfect dessert for the new parents.  I topped the cupcakes off with maple cream cheese frosting and marzipan carrots.  The grated carrots in the cupcakes were sweet but not overwhelming.  After making these cupcakes and tasting how delicious carrot cake is, I’m on board with veggies in my sweets!
