My daughter is obsessing over these it's her new every birthday dessert :)
Not surprised these are top tier when I saw who it was made by lol.
I personally think the best carrot cake recipe had a little more texture but thats just me, both were equally delicious in the end nonetheless.
So the walnuts weren't too tasty with this instead I'd recommend using almonds they taste far better with desserts.
Adorable little snack for the morning or a party.
It's a shame most desserts aren't too healthy, I'd gladly eat this everyday if I wouldn't get fat haha.
Raisins are a biggg no from me but everything else blended well.
Replaced normal sugar with brown to make the cupcakes a little less sweet cause the first time i made them it was too hard to bare since fruits have natural sweetness.
Not the most affordable dessert on this website for sure but is it worth it? Yes. Let me explain why. Not only does this have an amazing texture (Soft on the inside stable and slightly crunchy on the outside) It can be used for every holiday if you mix around ingridents, on christmas add cinnamon, on halloween add licorice frosting etc. Really good idea.
Can't get over how easy it was to make this love me some carrot cake and having it be mini and cute with some honey is even better!
Why the double baking powder and soda thing? just curious why
Easter is my all time favorite holiday and these cupcakes do it justice, the perfect easter dessert that anyone could ask for and you can always change up the design!
Sooo much cream cheese I'm SHOOK but the frosting was super fluffy and tasty for sure haha.
Going to give it a 4 only because it took longer than the time written.
Little lesss honey and its grate.
Add a bit of cinnamon to the top and thank me later
I drew some little eggs on top of the cupcakes with frosting (-:
Ended up having to use 3 eggs instead of two cause the batter was still extremely dry, luckily the muffins turned out great nonetheless though phew..
Huge crowd pleaser me and the family loved this recipe a lot.
These cupcakes are freaking amazing!! Super soft and delicious.
Well done! Verified!
