I had fun making these cakes for this month’s Center Parcs blog.
I’ve wanted to share these mini carrot cakes with you for a while. It’s a failsafe recipe and they are very moist and moreish, especially with the tangy cream cheese frosting.
Instead of my usual standby of making cakes and sticking mini eggs on top, I decided to make teeny carrots out of fondant. I had a pleasing little production line going and made far more than I needed, so George and Ed ate them as sugar filled snacks for the rest of the week.
Easter seems to have become a huge retail event lately. I can’t believe the amount of Easter-themed products and decorations in the shops this year. I shan’t be decorating my house for Easter, or buying lots more food than normal, but I will be making carrot cupcakes.
The Easter Bunny doesn’t usually bring me a chocolate egg, so I am going to eat his cakes.
If you’d like the recipe click here where there’s the recipe for the cake and frosting and instructions for making the carrots.
There’s even a downloadable template for the easter bunting, ‘cos I’m nice like that.
