Christmas Cupcakes Ideas

A cupcake also known as fairy cake; patty cake or cup cake is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes.

Carrot Cake Cupcake Recipe 


2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3 cups finely shredded carrots (a food processor is great for this)

1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup vegetable oil

4 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cupcake pans with paper liners if desired.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Mix at low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly while mixing.  Mix at high speed for 3 minutes, scraping bowl every minute.

Pour batter into cupcake liners until they are 1/2 to 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes in pans then move to wire rack to cool completely.
These Carrot Cake Cupcakes are especially good with a cream cheese frosting.

Cupcake Tip:

This cupcake recipe is great for baby showers or wedding showers.  Decorate each cupcake with baby trinkets or wedding trinkets.
