In honor of 2 dearest friends birthdays, I made my first batch of cupcakes ever on Sunday for our outing to the hollywood bowl.
I generally am not a big fan of cake. I was the kid who had peach pie with candles at her birthday party every year. Except for yummy carrot cake, which I absolutely, unfailingly LOVE.
I found a recipe that had good reviews on epicurious and added and extra cup of shredded zucchini (they are taking over the kitchen counter), raisins, and nutmeg.
Happy birthday Jen (last sunday) and Melanie (today)!
