What's more Easter then bunnies? And what are bunnies favorite food...carrots! Whether it be in cake or cupcake form, a carrot cake should definitely grace your easter table. This is a deliciously moist carrot cake recipe with a sinfully delicious bourbon maple frosting. I happen to love baking and cooking with bourbon; here are a few other recipes that I've used bourbon in. I have to say though, the frosting is not an intense bourbon flavor. I actually had my coworkers try to guess the icing flavor one day and only one got it right. It's more like a sweet tang that you get from the bourbon, a perfect companion to the carrot cake. A little healthy, a little naughty, these cupcakes are a must try.
