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..
