"Lindsay's favorite cake is carrot cake, so I baked her a big, beautiful one for our wedding in 2013. I know, I know I'm a bit of a pathetic romantic when it comes to my girl. Not only did it make her swoon, but it tasted bloody delicious, too. I'm now sharing the love with you guys in the form of cupcakes." — Curtis
To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to blend; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla to blend. Slowly add the oil, whisking to blend well. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold in carrots, raisins and walnuts.
To make the frosting, add ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl, using a handheld mixer). Beat about 6 minutes, or until smooth, fluffy, and creamy.
Spread the frosting over the tops of the cupcakes.
Make-ahead: The frosted cupcakes will keep for up to 2 days, stored airtight in the refrigerator. Serve the cupcakes cold or at room temperature.
