CEiMB: Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Lemony Cream Cheese Frosting

Don't forget to enter my Giveaway and/or the Gift Exchange:
the deadline for the Blogoversary Giveaway is August 14th,
the deadline for the Gift Exchange is August 30th.

Leanne of Enjoying my Favorite Things got to pick this weeks recipe for Craving Ellie in My Belly, she picked Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Lemony Cream Cheese Frosting.
You can find the recipe here at Leanne's blog.

I made miniature cupcakes so that I could use my new mini-cupcake stand, isn't it cute? I got it using the gift certificate I got from my colleagues for my 30th birthday.

I was a bit dissappointed by the cupcakes, but then again maybe I'm just not a carrotcake-girl. I've never had carrotcake in my life. I had to improvise on the frosting 'cause I seemed to be out of lemons: I used lemon juice instead of zest, I needed 4 teaspoons of lemon juice to get a lemony taste to the frosting. Delicious!! The cupcakes were not my favorite Ellie-recipe so far, I loved the frosting though. Go figures: I like the least healthy part of the recipe!!

Check out what my fellow Elie-istas thought of the cupcakes here.

Next weeks recipe is Stuffed Turkey Burgers picked by one of my favourite bloggers Peggy of Pantry Revisited.

The cupcakes look so cute in that stand! I don't know if I'm a huge carrot cake fun, but I think most people love it for the cream cheese frosting.
