How to screw up carrot cupcakes

We were lucky enough to be invited up to a cabin in Donner Lake with my dad and stepmom. I wanted to bake something to show our appreciation, like chocolate chip cookies. The only issue is that my dad is not a fan of chocolate…at all.

SONY DSCWhat’s a girl to do but to seek inspiration in her Pinterest page. So, I found a recipe for carrot cupcakes. The recipe looked pretty easy I was sure I wouldn’t be able to screw this up. Oh, how I was wrong.

First of all, it called for shredded carrots. I got a bag at the store, but the carrots were really big. Maybe that’s how they’re supposed to be but I don’t recall the carrots poking out of the dough like mine were. SONY DSC

Then I forgot to spray the muffin pan before, total rookie move. After I left the cupcakes in the oven longer than the recipe called for (35 minutes), I was sure that they would be overdone. However, after I checked and let them cool…they still seemed to fall apart when I tried to pull them out of the pan.

I haven’t tried them yet because I’m waiting for our trip to Donner but I will be sure to report back with how they tasted.

I’m starting to believe that I was a better baker when I first started. Maybe beginner’s luck? Hope not! Guess I’ll have to keep baking to find out.
