Hello world! and carrot cupcakes

I hope you'll enjoy your visit and will come back to get know more about it. This is my first blog in English and second in my life. Still some changes must be done, but my Facebook fan page is already on. So if you'd like to know about new recipes - be sure to follow me.
These carrot cupcakes are not so fatty as their relatives with butter. They are moist and tasty. Not to sweet from inside and with nice sweet topping. Without topping can be stored for a few days or easily converted in to present.
