Carrot Cake Cupcakes is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great flavor, but bad recipe I just made this for Easter and was not I good recipe. I'm especially surprised coming from Wilton. It has great flavor, but I baked them for 23 minutes, most sunk in the middle, and they were all either raw or undercooked. I'm very disappointed to say the least.

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...
