For the Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a muffin tin with liners.

While the oven heats, in a bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg powder. Whisk together and set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil and sugar, then add in the grated ginger, mashed banana and carrots. Stir to combine, then add in the flour and stir again.

Coop the mixture into the muffin holders until 3/4 way full and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting

In the meantime, make your frosting by adding the cream cheese, butter, vanilla and zest to a stand mixer with a creaming attachment.

Once everything is smooth, add in the sifted icing sugar and stir again until smooth.

Pipe onto your cupcakes once they've cooled completely and enjoy!
