Carrot cake cupcakes

Made these with the Betty Crocker carrot cake mix and new piping nozzles I got as Christmas pressies. As you can see, I really could have done with taking some more time and attention on the icing, but I had a hungry family vying for my ankles the moment they hatched out the hot box, so I hardly had time! It was all they could do to let me put on a little cinnamon and silver sugar!

Now, I do love carrot cake I do, and a good'un at that, nice and moist and dense it should be, should be being the operative term here. Personally, I'm not super impressed with this mix, it was a bit dry and a flavourless to my tongue. Still, I can put the onus on me, if I was going to bake these again I'd add far more water, and probably some sultanas and a good glogg of milk to wet it up a bit (v technical term). For all my complaining though, the fam fam still hoovered them up in light speed!


  1. I fail at icing too I don't have the attention spam for it! Also I find carrot cake one of the hardest things to get just right.

  2. I don't know what your talking about! The icing looks well applied! It looks like white licorish twisted up with shiny sprinkles on it! I think they look great!

  3. Sooooooooo delicious, ahhhhhhhhhhh. Please, can I have some, ahhhhhhhhh

  4. Well, despite you not loving the turn out of these...they LOOK incredible. That icing job is clutch!
