Carrot cake is usually topped with smooth, slightly buttery cream cheese frosting. Not these. These carrot cake cupcakes with their baked in vanilla, pineapple, walnuts, coconut, cinnamon, ginger and cloves, are finished off with a layer of dulce de leche buttercream. The frosting, which contains butter, heavy cream, vanilla, powdered sugar, salt and dulce de leche, adds another dimension to the already complex flavors within the cake. Of course, if you want to go the traditional route, reach for the cream cheese!
