There was ice fog all day, I am exhausted after running 14 miles yesterday (!), and it was a Monday. So, I needed to bake something sweet, and then smear it with icing. I developed a crazy craving for carrot cake while walking the dog after work and couldn’t think of anything else. I’m not even sure if I like carrot cake, but today, I needed carrot cake. Luckily, I had a giant bag of carrots in the fridge just waiting to made into something less nutritious. I decided to try this carrot cake recipe – I seem to be obsessed with cooking and her photos always look so good. My cupcakes look slightly less orange, and are much smaller (since medium cupcake liners were on sale) but still tasted delicious. Anything covered in cream cheese icing can’t be that bad. Now that I’ve eaten a few of them the weather has cleared up, my legs ache a little less and Monday seems to have passed by nicely.
