Carrot Cake Cupcakes (Round 2!)

    Newer Older

    My second test round of carrot cupcakes for my boyfriend's cousin's wedding this fall! I think these are The Ones =). Moist, flavorful with subtle variance in texture from chopped nuts and coconut...everything you could want in carrot cake! Recipe and story to come on my blog.

    As for the photography, I kinda wish I hadn't have dyed the frosting orange. The colors were going a bit wacky between the background, orange frosting, and yellow-tinged afternoon light. Also had a bit of trouble hiding the crookedness of the stand hehe.

      the frosting were perfect and tidy. I want to try someday. But here in your image, the frosting orange looks fine combining with the blue back ground.

      My goodness, Xiaolu, did I not see the star tip on your post or did you add it later??? In the video it looks like you are using a lot of strenght to pipe the frostings. It's not for weaklings :-)

      Although the blue-orange contrast is fresh, somehow it reminds me of 1970's. Sweetie, you were not born then :-). Perhaps you carried the theme from your previous incarnation :-).

      I like the orange frosting, it looks delicious. I would change the background, if I were to change anything.

      LOLOL I love you, dear! Yes, I actually hate how the colors turned out and didn't think it would come out like this. And no, hehe, I added the photo of the tip after you posted. But it'd be funny if I pretended it were there all along ;p.
