Carrot Cupcakes

Our neighbors gave us a bunch of carrots and so I made these carrot cupcakes and cream cheese frosting from the Martha Stewart cupcake book. I modified the cupcake recipe slightly and added different amount of spices (including nutmeg) since we didn't have ginger. A funny part is that I was so worried about the spice ratio that I forgot to add the oil on the first 6 cupcakes. I fortunately remembered for the rest of the batch and those were delicious. The oil-less ones were edible- they were just very dense and not very moist but some extra cream cheese frosting. Haha- you would have though that I would have learned my lesson with the cupcake pops- at least these definitely looked much more aesthetically pleasing!
