To Make the Cupcakes
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugars, cinnamon, baking agents, salt, and nutmeg. Mix well. Set aside.
4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until smooth.
5. Add the olive oil, vanilla, milk, and grated carrots. Mix well.
6. Add the flour mixture to the egg bowl, then mix just until combined.
7. Fill the cupcake liners 3/4th full.
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
9. Let cool completely before piping on the frosting.
To Make the Frosting
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the softened butter and cream cheese. Beat until smooth.
2. Add the vanilla, salt, and the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.
3. Add a little heavy cream or milk as needed to help soften the frosting texture.
4. Whisk for 5-6 minutes, until light and fluffy.
5. Transfer to a piping bag.
To Assemble
1. Remove 1/3 cup of the frosting.
2. Add orange food coloring to desired preference. Mix well.
3. Pipe the white frosting onto the cupcakes.
4. Flatten the tops with an offset spatula.
5. Roll the edges in the finely crushed walnuts.
6. Pipe a carrot-like triangle shape on the tops, then decorate with a fresh parsley leaf to resemble a carrot.
7. Enjoy!
