Orange Speckles

Mom was requesting for carrot cake and decided to make her one. I halved the recipe batter and the frosting into two. The first half was placed into a loaf pan and the rest into muffin tins. I baked the cupcakes for about 15-20 minutes. I was considering of adding this as part of my Christmas Project but decided not to. There are plenty of carrot cakes out there already. I know it is simple to do and the ingredients are not hard to find. But I want a special one that is different.

One thing I got out of this adventure, I was able to play around with food coloring and modified the look of the cream cheese frosting. I didn't want to store it in the freezer for future use. I added the remaining grated carrot (about 1/3 cup) to 1/3 of the frosting. And viola, an orange speckled frosting over moist carrot cupcakes. The taste of carrots in the frosting wasn't that evident but the color and texture was pleasing IMHO.
