Carrot Cupcakes with Marzipan-Parsley Carrot Toppers

Newer Older

Fairly satisfied with how this came out =). Wish the light were slightly different, but it was a deary overcast day today and yesterday. Marzipan is yummy! I could eat these "carrots" all day =).

Story and recipe on my blog.

    You are the master of swirls :) All your cupcakes have beautiful swirls and this one of course.

    I've seen a lot of marzipan carrots. Those are good and realistic looking.

    Aisha, yes I like the pot of "carrots" too ^_^. I felt like a little kid when I was assembling that haha.

    What's wrong with the light? I really like it. Nothing is blown out, which it usually does with white frosting

    Thanks, Kulsum! Actually the right back of the frosting IS slightly blown out but I'm glad it's not super noticeable heheh 8) I did brighten the photo somewhat since I first posted it, it looked a bit more overcast before (which would be accurate to the weather).

    I have never seen such perfect carrot cupcakes. Never. And yours are the first ones. Definitely.

    Your urban garden is fabulous. May I join in harvesting the rest of the carrots? It seems the cupcake-tree is growing well and gifting you with many fruits, too.

    Thanks, to you both!

    Laksmi, I always look forward to your comments. They bring a smile to my face with their unique perspective. I only WISH cupcakes like these grew on trees 8).

    But my friends, who are over 70 years old, said that they have a cupcake tree in the garden, and I've tasted the fruits many times. That old people don't lie. They also have a tool tree behind the house, and I've been given a plane, two knives, power drill and several bags of screws from it. Now I'm bewildered?!

    How do you make the cupcakes look so incredible nice? Those swirls.... OMG...
    That little garden is adorable.... but those ruffles!! WIsh you could teach me how to do it.
    Btw, the light is fine, I don't see any mistake.

    That carot garden – something amazing. Textures – wonderful. And metal cups – I'd like have the same:)
