Caramel Buttercream Frosting
Make the cupcakes first
Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract together until well combined.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the grated carrots.
Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
To make the frosting, beat the butter in a large bowl until smooth. Add the powdered sugar, milk, and caramel sauce and beat until well combined and the frosting is light and fluffy.
Frost the cooled cupcakes as desired.
Enjoy, Good Appetite!
