Carrot Cake Cupcakes

You may remember Laura from this post here, sharing a recipe for the prettiest berry parfait ever but if you’re a new reader of DTS let me share a little background before I dive into the best cupcakes I have ever seen. 

Laura is from the Gold Coast and as obsessed with breakfast food as I am. Honestly, do yourself a favour and check out her instagram. She takes it to a new level! Laura started preparing breakfasts in jars a few years ago and now has found a passion for these beautiful, dainty and delicious breakfast jars. Its pretty much an art form! 

She has recently branched out and made the most delicious carrot cake cupcakes, which I couldn’t help but share as carrot cake is my favourite!  (Whats yours?) Without further ado.. 

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

    Stopping by from FFF. Love the look of those carrot cakes, one of my all time favourites. I even did them for my daughters first birthday party.

    It really is the little things that make it. I love the tiny decorations on top! So simple yet so effective.

    Carrot cake is for sure my favourite cake ever!! These look very cute and I’ve massively failed in making a traditional carrot cake recipe so might have to give this one a try 🙂
