Simply delicious cake: Mini carrot cake

My nephew loves carrot cake, ^^, and yes because of that I want to make it for him too.

This cake contains a lot of carrot and  I like the texture of it, it's dense and moist, actually you can eat it without the frosting if you want too. The frosting is quite sweet, but it will be delicious for someone who have sweet tooth ^^. This cake can be made in only one bowl, and you don't need much equipment, so if you are new to baking, making the carrot cake can be great, because it's easy and always delicious, hehe. Having this carrot cake with a cup of hot tea is the best tea time treat. 
Note:  Next week, I will take Chocolate making class. So, I may not have a chance to post the recipe ^^, but I will let you know how my course and my life is (and I hope it will be a great week for me).
