Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

I found this recipe on with a recipe for Carrot Cake, but I decided to put it on my Zucchini Cupcakes

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

10oz. cream cheese
5 tbs unsalted butter, room temperature
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl until light and fluffy.  Add powdered sugar and beat at low speed until well blended.  Beat in maple syrup.  Chill until just firm enough to spread, 30min.

I only had 8 oz. of cream cheese so I just added the whole stick of butter to compensate and it came out very yummy.
