According to Ebony. . .

Carrot cake is the muffin of the cake world. Cuz you have cupcakes, which are awesome and then muffins, which are alright. That's what carrot cake is.

Well, there's a carrot cake in the oven now and she has just come running down the stairs. "I smell CAKE! I smell CAKE!" because she's five. I had to tell her it was a muffin.


Carrot cake is yummy. When I first went to UVA, there was a period of time when it and Banana Bread was all I could keep down reliably. Luckily, food services made it regularly, and I could use my meal plan ticket to buy it.

Stress and depression. Gotta love 'em. But at least they turned me on to carrot cake! and banana bread!

Isn't that the only difference between a muffin and a cupcake- the icing? (Frosting? Is there a difference?) Of course the "Muffin + Icing = Cupcake" equation disregards bran-and-fiber types. They don't exist in my world.

Ebony has declared the carrot cake not as awesome as a red velvet cupcake but a whole lot more awesome than a muffin. Because of the frosting. I made it myself, with walnuts instead of pecans cuz that's what was in the pantry.
