We had another special birthday this weekend – Trevor’s! It was a big one, but he is shy and doesn’t want me to share his age. We’ll just say he spent his quarantined birthday celebrating exactly how he loves – quietly and home with all of his family. You can tell me how old (or young) that sounds… 🙂
Oh, and eating Carrot Cake cupcakes that we made! Why carrot cake? Well, if you know anything about Trevor, you know he loves ice cream, cakes, cookies… anything sweet!
But this year, he wanted to eat a little lighter. So, I looked around in cookbooks and online and was inspired by an amazing blogger named Jasmine who runs/writes for the Black Food Bloggers Club. She shared the most amazing looking carrot cake and I knew I found what I would make for Trevor’s birthday.
Now, her amazing recipe is Vegan but Trevor wanted a cream cheese frosting. So, I made a hybrid version of Jasmine’s and another blogger, Lee from FitFoodieFinds, to make the perfect cupcakes!
Unlike most carrot cakes, these cupcakes are super moist and super delicious! The cream cheese frosting is creamy and you’ll never know it’s healthy! It’ll surprise your friends and family when they find out how healthy it really is! I hope you like these as much as we did!
