Carrot Cupcakes

We like to put a little carrot on top of the cupcakes using Wilton sparkle gel in orange and green. This is so cute and it’s especially fun for Easter. You can skip this part if you would rather have plain icing. These are certainly good any time of year! Sometimes if I have a few extra minutes I will make this Vanilla Buttercream Frosting instead of using the store bought. It’s very simple and so good! You could even skip the icing all together and just eat these as carrot muffins! I love recipes that you can use different ways. It’s a great way to get extra veggies in your kids. Even my kids that do not like carrots will eat these! They say they are so yummy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Make sure the cupcakes are really cool before icing and decorating with the gel. I use a set of these baking racks and they are great!

These carrot muffins are so yummy and it’s a tasty way to get your family to eat carrots. I use a grater or you can use small food processor to grate the carrots.

    Hi, Taste terrific!.
    Doubled recipe.
    Only filled cupcake silicone & paper liners less than half.
    Help!
    For some reason they rose way up (figuring would have very nice muffin tops) & then went flat w/ indents spreading all over all over the muffin pans.
    Not sure what went wrong but it is time to purchase new pans.
    Any advice? TU
