We found a carrot cupcake recipe online that sounds pretty easy to make, so we thought we give it a go one weekend. The recipe seems easy enough...however the trickiest part was making the cream cheese icing. It was too runny and the vanilla essence made it look pretty yellow instead of the off-white stiff icing that we like.
However i can honestly say that the cupcakes were yummy and moist :) So I think the next time we make this cupcakes we will try a different cream cheese recipe, one that has a stiffer icing, and we might subtitute the vanilla essence with almond essence instead so it won't look so yellow.
Here is the finished result...
Dont you just love those cupcake cases? they are so pretty! Oh and we made the little daisies and leaf decoration on top of the icing.
Here is a mug shot of the cupcake for your viewing pleasure...i guess the photographer in me just wont stop at one photo lol :P

They are so photogenic that i can't help taking more close-up photo :)
