Carrot Cake Cupcakes With Freakin’ Awesome Frosting

Birthday season at work is upon us and that means I’m forced back into baking. To be honest, I didn’t realize how much I had missed it. The husband surely missed it as he complained that I never make anything for him anymore. I might squeeze something in this weekend despite working, but we’ll see what the future holds.

When I asked my boss what he wanted for his birthday treat, with no hesitation he said, “Carrot cake cupcakes with maple cream cheese frosting.” I think he knew I’d be asking soon and had that answer locked and loaded.

I used one recipe for the cake and a different recipe for the frosting, not the one listed with the cake recipe.

(That whoopie pie recipe looks awesome but I skipped all that and just used the frosting recipe.)

Carrot Cake Zucchini Bread

I wanted to get one more zucchini bread recipe in before zucchini went out of season. My husband was begging for this one and both the boys (my husband and his best friend/roommate) ate 1 & 1/2 loaves of this in roughly 48 hours. So I suppose that makes it a pretty damn good recipe. I did not make the icing for the top. Icing on bread is not my favorite thing. Glazes are better.
