CARROT CUPCAKES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

On Easter, my best friend Kelly came over and we decided to conquer making something sweet after all of these years contemplating on cooking together. The last time we baked something together was a fruit layered cake that soon succumbed into one thin layered bread. (Quite the fail there.) But this time turned out to be a huge success.

I love making mean salads with a whole lot of vibrant colors, but you can do what you please with yours. This salad and this vinaigrette by An Edible Mosaic will make you crave for more like it did for me. Hope  ...
