Chloe's Carrot Cupcakes!

A huge welcome to one of our newest Honorary Cupcake Lovers, Gina Husta!  I happen to work with Gina at my local library and know from sampling several of her delectable delights over the years that SHE is an amazing baker. Imagine my glee when she said she had whipped up a special cupcake recipe for Cupcake Lovers! And we named them after Chloe Madison, the heroine of the first CL book, FOOL FOR LOVE.

Happy holidays and enjoy!
