Carrot Cake Cheesecake Cupcakes

StreuselIf the title of this post seems like it has a lot going on it’s because these cupcakes have a lot going on!

The inspiration for this creation came from my friend Jen who was in NYC a bit ago and had a slice of Junior’s Carrot Cake Cheesecake!  She challenged me to make it.  I thought about making a full size cake but being a huge fan of cupcakes, I challenged myself to attempt a cupcake version.  The real challenge came when I decided to layer the cakes while baking instead of layering post baking like the full size version.

I thought putting the cheesecake layer on the bottom would be good but after trying to take pictures of them and when peeling the foil wrapper off the bottom, disaster… a small layer of the cheesecake came off!  I am thinking the carrot cake might be better on the bottom.  I used the cheesecake recipe from this post and adapted the carrot cake and cream cheese frosting from Sugar Spun Run!
