Easy Easter Carrot Cupcakes Recipe

Carrot cake cupcake

I made carrot cake cupcakes for Easter.  It's my normal carrot cake* recipe, but I made it into cupcakes and decorated with my cream cheese frosting, dyed shredded coconut green for grass, and added Reese's eggs on top.  It was a big hit at our Easter celebration/egg hunt!

*Carrot Cake recipe is the easiest, and tastiest recipe I've found to date!  If not making cupcakes, simply pour into 9x13" greased pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 min.  Yum!
