If I weren’t a photographer I think I would love to be a baker or a pastry chef. I’ve always had a serious sweet tooth and love cooking desserts just as much as I love eating them. Some of my favorite childhood food memories are making tarts and pies with my grandmothers.

So of course when I had Easter dinner at my house this year I made one of my favorite things, carrot cake, which I decided to make as cupcakes. I tried to plan ahead but my weekend was a little hectic so the baking didn’t commence until 2am Sunday morning. While my dog was curled up in bed I was happily listening to the whir of my mixer in a cloud of powdered sugar and licking cream cheese icing from my fingers.

This was my first foray in making this particular dessert… which began with a lot of prep work, mainly shredding the carrots.

Just like my grandmother Brock, who is an excellent cook, I can create a serious mess when I’m in the kitchen.

Thankfully there were leftovers which went very well with my hot tea at breakfast Monday morning!

Not even this crumb was spared.
