Mini G made a special request for Halloween cupcakes, which I was all to happy to oblige. His cupcake of choice was carrot cupcakes, but they had to be spooooky. We picked out a recipe together – we used Eric Lanlard’s Carrot Cake recipe from Home Bake.
G and I gathered the ingredients.
We grated the carrots.
Mini G helped by stirring the eggs into the sugar and the oil.
And then he added the flour into the mixture.
Then he added the carrots, folding them into the mixture and got the batter ready to go into the cupcake cups.
We used spooky spider cupcake cups for the Halloween treats.
The cake texture was fantastic. This recipe is a keeper!
We decorated the cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting and added some special toppings to create a creepy crawly spider:
Place half a prune in the center of the cake, then cut a cola flavoured sour spagettini into 1 1/4 inch lengths and arrange like spider legs around the prune. Spooooky!
Then watch the cupcakes crawl off the plate… YUM!
