I made my carrot cake for my friend and coworker Rosie’s birthday two years ago, the cake looked amazing and was delicious and full of flavor….The spice mixture, the delicious nuts and raisins I used in the batter made the cake extra scrumptious…

The Recipe for the carrot cake is linked in this post, the batter yield exactly 27 cupcakes and I baked them for 35 minutes…

Cupcakes are a wonderful idea and I love them for  birthdays or a weekend gathering especially when having kids over.

I frosted the cupcakes with my sugar free cream cheese frosting and top them with chopped mix of pecans and walnuts…

Happy birthday Rosie… we all love you…

Enjoy!

I remembered a while back Rosie told me that Carrot cake is her absolute favorite cake to have on her birthday, so I decided to bake one for her last night, and I brought it to work today.

She was completely surprised because we had to hide everything, and she thought we forgot her birthday, the look on her face was priceless.

The cake turned out absolutely delicious, everyone loved it, the combinations of the spices is just amazing; it had delicious, tender and moist crumbs that melts in your mouth kind cake!
