This weekend we had an early Easter celebration with friends and I was asked to bring dessert. Heaven. In my world, we'd just skip dinner all together and move on to the treats. I guess if there are carrots involved it's sort of like dinner?
So I started with my mom's Carrot Cake and Cream Cheese Frosting recipe, which also makes about 22-24 cupcakes. Follow the recipe in the link and bake them for about 18 mins.
Who doesn't love a festive cupcake topper?!
Okay, pretty self-explanatory but here are some tips....
• Use a crayon to color the carrot circle stickers (you can also use orange stickers but I sorta like how the crayon makes it look grainy)
• Use three yarn strings for the carrots, sandwich them between two orange stickers, squeeze together, and cut the sides in an angle, like a carrot.
• Cut each yarn ear about 2 1/2 -2 3/4 inches long.
• Make tan bunnies, black, whatever!
NOTE: some finished toppers pulled apart a bit from the bulky yarn
in the middle. But overall they worked well and I just squeezed them
together again before our party.
I realized after pouring batter into all the cups that I'd forgotten to add the mil.
So I squeezed the batter from every cup and had to go with the silver liners instead. No big deal but seriously how cute were those orange ones??
