Apple & Carrot Bundt Cake

Clementine Cupcakes

These flashy cupcakes are sure to turn heads.  The hardest part is peeling the membranes from the clementine sections, but once you've got that done it's smooth sailing the rest of the way.

And while you're at it, I suggest dipping a few extra sections in chocolate.  They make for a tasty snack.
