Carrot cake is a classic treat that can be served any time of the year, but is especially tasty in the winter. Something about those cold, snowy days calls for a hearty cupcake flavored with ground up carrots, sliced walnuts, orange zest, buttermilk, ground cardamom and ground cinnamon. Once these cupcakes have baked and have had a chance to cool off, top them with a homemade cream cheese frosting. This classic frosting will make them even harder to resist!
