So here I am again. Telling you something else that I don’t like but making it beautiful and yummy to eat. You may be surprised that I am not a fan of carrots or carrot cake. It is not my favorite thing. Also, I am very particular on raisins in food also. I like raisins, but only in my cereal (Raisin Bran to be exact). But these cupcakes right here are simply amazing. I ate one and thoroughly enjoy it. These could also pass for cupcakes, by the way.
I don’t know where I came up with the idea to combine carrot cake and pumpkin, considering that I am not a big fan of carrot cake, but I think it had something to do with the fall. When I am starting to feel the mood of the current season, I start to get sentimental and begin to feel all mushy inside. The things that I love about the fall are: 1. The leaves changing colors; 2. Wearing fashion boots and sweaters; 3. Kids in Halloween Costumes; and 4. Comfort food. I am sure that you have your “thing (s)” that you love about the fall also. Whatever that list is , you might as well add these cupcakes to the list.
