I have moved my blog here to WordPress!  Look for sweet things to come! Check my recipe out as featured on Cakespy…thanks guys!

Tortoise vs. Hare Cupcakes (part carrot cake, part turtle candy!)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter (room temp.)
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup chocolate chunks

Thick Caramel Icing (courtesy of Chockylit)
1/2 cup butter1 cup packed brown sugar1/2 cup light corn syrup6 ounces sweetened condensed milk1 tablespoon heavy cream1 teaspoon vanilla1/2 teaspoon salt

With a wooden spoon, stir all ingredients together and then slowly add the heavy cream.3. Continue to stir for about 20 minutes until the caramel reached 248 degrees. It is important to continuously stir the mixture and to allow it to reach temperature.4. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and salt.
