Carrot Cake Cupcakes is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is weird. I'm by no means a newbie (I own a bakery shop) and I decided to follow this recipe, since it had so many good reviews... This cupcakes spilled all over my pans :( The flavor was yummy but they didn't rise evenly like a good cupcake. I ended up adding a whole cup of extra flour to the second half of the batter and they looked like they should, but obviously the flavor changed... I think this might be a good base recipe to work with, but I definitely need to make some adaptations if I ever decide to bake them again...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's nothing more easier and more delicious! It was my first cake or something sweet with carrots. I thought that it's a weird combination of tastes (because in Poland, where I live, it's not so popular recipe). But now I'm suprised:) I make carrot cupcakes,when I have not time to do something exclusive for my guests:) PS: forgive me my english, because It's not my language:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have tried this recipe several times and each time the cakes have tasted delightful but they have sunk in the middle!! I have looked at several other websites and noticed the cooking time is much longer and the temperature of the oven is a lot lower..... I am going to atempt to bake for much longer on a lower heat and will advise the outcome!! Happy baking.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made half recipe and it was the best carrot cupcake ever.. especially with the cream cheese frosting on this website. Using the decorating tips, bags, red yellow and green colourings and spatula from my 101piece decorating set I added cute little carrots with leaves to top my icing. They looked great and tasted even better! :) Thanks wilton!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was perfect for Thanksgiving and was pretty easy way serve no cutting and no fuss. great reviews from all who ate it. watch the baking time really close don't want to overcook the cupcakes. my first batch was really dry so took them out about 3 to 5 mins early to keep them moist. icing was best put on while the cupcakes where still a warm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cupcakes came out nice and moist. I baked them for 23 minutes. I love the taste of cinnamon in carrot cake, I didn't get much cinnamon taste in this recipe so the only thing I'll do different next time is add more cinnamon and more nuts. I did get 30 cupcakes with this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and delicious! Filled with the cream cheese cupcake filling and topped with the cream cheese buttercream, and oddly enough it was not too much cream cheese as the filling is more savory and the buttercream is sweet. Will make again soon, and many times after!
