Carrot cupcakes

One of my cupcake orders was something light and not very sweet. These carrot cupcakes fitted the description perfectly. Half of them were spicy with walnut pieces (above) and the other half were almond and carrot cupcakes (below). I decorated them with a sugarpaste/ fondant carrot. cute eh ? :)
I liked both version but i have to say that the almond carrot cupcakes are my favourites. I love almonds. The recipe for the spicy cupcakes is the same I used for the carrot cake featured previously. The recipe for the almond carrot cupcakes is from an Italian blog. Here's the link
