Bunnies love carrots so it only makes sense to serve these carrot cupcakes for dessert at your Easter dinner.
Your family will hop to the table for them!
What You Need
1 package carrot cake mix, prepared as directed on box
1 cup raisins
1 can cream cheese frosting
yellow, red & green food coloring
sweetened, shredded coconut
Prepare the carrot cake mix as directed on the box. Stir 1-cup raisins into the batter. Bake cupcakes and cool completely before frosting. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese frosting on each cupcake.
For Grass on Cupcakes: Mix one cup coconut and 5 drops green food coloring together until the coconut is completely tinted. Dip each cupcake into the coconut, covering the entire surface.
For Carrots: Tint 1/2 c. cream cheese frosting with yellow and red food coloring until a bright orange color is achieved. Add icing to a plastic baggie, creating an icing bag. Snip 1/8 in. off one corner of the baggie. Pipe a carrot shape onto the coconut on each cupcake. Refer to the picture for an example of how the carrots should look.
For Carrot Tops: Tint 1/4 c. cream cheese frosting with green food coloring. Add icing to a plastic baggie creating an icing bag. Snip the very tip off one corner of the baggie. Pipe icing on top of carrot.
Store cupcakes in a sealed container. Cupcakes, without frosting, can be frozen. Defrost before frosting.
