A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be spoiled by my aunt, stepmom and sisters for my “friend” wedding shower. It was absolutely amazing to have all of my favorite people in one room. And typically when you have a room full of women, dessert tends to get skipped over. However, in the case of my shower, everyone was scrambling for seconds.
The allure at the dessert table was a beautiful assortment of cupcakes put together by my stepmom, Jayme. They looked like they came straight out of a bakery and tasted equally as amazing—she prepared chocolate, vanilla and carrot cake. Because I can’t giveaway all of her secrets at once, and because it’s my favorite, here is the recipe for Jayme’s Carrot Cake Cupcakes.
