Raw Carrot-Orange Cupcakes

I’ve been inspired today to make these cute, delicious, smooth and creamy raw cupcakes. I wanted to make something different than the regular cheesecake with cashews, so I tried a new recipe with walnuts instead of cashews and I also tried them frozen. In my opinion the texture is much better when they are frozen, because after a few minutes out of the freezer they became too soft and is even difficult to eat them with the hands.
