carrot cake gluten free cupcakes with cream cheese frosting

I’ve been wanting to make gluten free Carrot Cupcakes for a while now.  When I think of spring, I think of carrot cake and when I think of picnics and potlucks I think of carrot cake cupcake yumminess.

These little gluten free Carrot Cake Cupcakes are topped with my Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting, though if you’re looking for a vegan frosting option, you could go with my Coconut Cream Frosting.

My younger son loved these, though the whole family enjoyed them as well.  In the spirit of my own personal cupcake month, I present you with, Carrot Cake Cupcakes!
