Toothsome Bear Cakes

What's with the title to this post? Well, I spotted it on a girl's t-shirt in Japan - I love nonsensical English on Asian products! And it's what came to mind, for some reason, when I finished icing these carrot cake cupcakes.

Something about the lime cream cheese frosting and the toasted walnuts made me think "toothsome." But, to tell the truth, I was less than thrilled with the cake itself. I used a recipe from Nigella Lawson's How To Be A Domestic Goddess, and I think something got lost in the conversion from British to American measurements and temperature.

In other news, I am now a member of the Daring Bakers! I look forward to making this month's challenge - so look for the big reveal on August 31st!
