which was 2 tiered, and therefore 2 different types of cake. My daughter is a typical 6 year old and requested vanilla/vanilla for her tier. My 5 year old son, however, is a boy after my own heart. He asked for carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Love that boy. After hours and hours of making this cake, I moved on to the cupcakes that I had made with the left over batter.
My Carrot Cake recipe originated here: Paula Deen's Grandma's Carrot Cake. Since I am allergic to recipes, I have changed it. I mean, don't we all like different things in food? Why not. But I just want to give credit where it's due....and this recipe gets killer reviews, you should check it out.
So, now let me tell you how to make these:
After you frost the cupcakes, you can take it another step and make some adorable little fondant carrots. I used some store-bought fondant that I colored with food coloring, but you can use home-made marshmallow fondant, or you could even do this with Starburst candies.
So lets start by gathering the supplies you will need...and it's nothing fancy...
Next, follow these simple steps...
Easy as pie....or should I say easy as cupcakes. What I love about cupcakes is how simple they are. You don't have to spend hours making detailed fondant decorations. Give yourself 30 minutes or less and you can have some super cute fondant decorations for any cupcake. The possibilities are endless.
