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.)
