Carrot Cupcakes

My friend Beth had a request for carrot cupcakes so here they are.  It's a basic carrot cake recipe with the addition of sweetened coconut, raisins and crushed pineapple.  Some people believe carrot cake should be light and spongy, I am on the site that says it should be dense and chunky.

The frosting is a cream cheese with the addition of a bit of honey and cinnamon.  Garnished with fine sugar.

The recipe yields 24, but I had some extra to make 6 mini loaves.  If any one would like the recipe, just drop me an email.
