Recipe by blucoat

This is a moist and delicious carrot cake recipe from "Good Housekeeping". It produces a fluffy (rather than dense) cake and also makes great cupcakes (about 24). If you wanted frosted cupcakes, cut down the sugar in the cake recipe by 1/4 cup. For Cream Cheese Icing: In bowl, stir 2 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese and 1/4 c. sugar until smooth. Add 1/2 tsp milk, 1/4 tsp vanilla, and 1/2 c. more sugar; stir to a drizzling consistency.
