Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan, melt the white chocolate over low heat. Stir until smooth, and allow to cool to room temperature.

In a bowl beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in white chocolate, 1/2 tsp vanilla, & orange zest. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar until mixture is fluffy. Mix in milk if frosting is not at the desired consistency.

Beat together the eggs, white sugar, & brown sugar in a bowl and mix in the oil and vanilla. Fold in carrots and pineapple. In separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, & ginger. Mix flour mixture into the carrot mixture until evenly incorporated. Transfer to lined muffin pans.

Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely and frost.
