From-Scratch Carrot Cake Cupcakes!

22 Jul

I had extra carrots I had from my first stir fry in the wok PJ gave me. So dur, I made carrot cake. Stole the recipe from The Perfect Pantry. Instead of applesauce, I used plain yogurt, and I just used regular flower rather than whole wheat because I’m cheap. I also used dark brown rather than light brown sugar, because it’s way better – trust me, I’m from Sugar Land.

Naked...Scandalous!!

Mmm, delicious naked carrot cake cupcakes. They smelled so good!! Oh! I forgot to mention I tossed in some chopped in half dried cranberries into about half of them, just to experiment. I used my own secret cream cheese frosting and played around for the first time ever with a piping kit!

Dressed!

Yeah..some are kinda goofy…Don’t laugh, I was experimenting, and I’ve never really done piping before!! Needless to say, these were really good, and they gobbled them down at work and at PJ’s house. Next time, I think I’m gonna use apple sauce instead of yogurt, and throw in some pineapple and pecans for a more Southern vibe, kinda like a Hummingbird Carrot Cake. Definitely¬† yes make this!

Flashback to 3 weeks ago. I’m kinda bummed and almost resigned to just going to sleep instead of waiting for PJ. He walks in at midnight clutching a tiny furry mess and not even thinking I run up and steal it away and it is mine and I have melted into his giant blue eyes.

Now he lives in Sugar Land and is getting fat and running and playing outside and he learned that if he hides behind two pots in the backyard, he can watch the birds eating birdseed on the patio, but they can’t see him. He’s so smart! Guys I gave away the wrong cat! I should have pawned off Lucifer and her retarded bladder.

Aaw Donuts, you have a flea on your face!
