Today’s Royal Wedding gives us cause for celebration. Or rather, we have decided to take pause and celebrate the royal union of Will and Kate with what else? Flaxy Carrot Cupcakes!
All jokes aside, we wish the Royal Prince and Princess well, but these Flaxy Carrot Cupcakes are so good, you will want to bake them all year long – wedding or no wedding. Consume them often, with no guilt and the knowledge that these cupcakes, unlike many others, actually do contribute to your good health!
