Carrot Cupcakes w/ Orange Cream Cheese Icing

WHAT IS MONTHLY MUNCHIES? Each month, I take cookies or other goodies to my office staff meeting. They all get to enjoy some homemade treats and I get to use them as my guinea pigs to try out new recipes. I’ve been doing this for about 4 years now.

Also see this month’s other Monthly Munchies recipe – Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

As I mentioned in the Chocolate Chunk cookie post, this recipe was a special request by a coworker. She had been jonesing for carrot cake for a couple of months and not being the type to go out of her way to indulge her craving, she’d just been doing without! So, I was happy to oblige. Besides, my boyfriend loves carrot cake too, and since I’d never made one, this was a perfect time to get a recipe on the books for him.

I left the nuts out of these due to some nut allergies at the office, but when I make it again for my boyfriend, I will add chopped pecans, so I have included them in this recipe.
