Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting

Carrot cake cupcakes have two seasons - spring & fall!  They are especially delicious with some spiced cream cheese frosting.  Using the same spices used in the cake, cinnamon & nutmeg, it adds another layer of flavor to the already delicious cream cheese frosting.

Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting
for ~24 cupcakes
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
12 oz cream cheese
6 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cream the cream cheese and sugar on medium speed in the bowl of a stand mixer.  Slowly add in the powdered sugar and mix on low.  Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and mix until combined.  Pipe onto your cupcakes!  Extra frosting can be frozen for 2-3 months.
