Looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth? How about some tasty cupcakes?

A full size cake will go to waste at my house. We usually eat a few pieces and the rest will sit untouched until I finally get around to throwing it out. But  a batch of cupcakes never last long and there are never any left uneaten. Especially when it’s my Carrot Cake Cupcakes topped with Galbani® Ricotta Frosting.

It’s hard to beat the moist spiced flavor of carrot cake. In fact the only thing that makes it better is a when it’s topped with a rich and creamy frosting. For me, there’s nothing better than these cupcakes with plenty of rich and creamy ricotta frosting.

While a cream cheese frosting may be the usual topping for carrot cake, I prefer the freshness that ricotta bring to the frosting. All you need is six ingredients for great taste. And face it, a homemade frosting just can’t be beat!

So when you want a sweet treat, grab a container of Ricotta Cheese and pull out your blender. In a matter of minutes, you will have the most amazing frosting ever. Use it for a batch of cupcakes … carrot cake, chocolate, vanilla or whatever cake you love.
