Candy Carrot Cupcakes for Spring or Easter
These adorable springtime cupcakes are so cute, and easy to make too! You could use them for Easter or any occasion really.
You will need
- 12 orange Starburst (cut in half)
- Bag of Rips candy (green for the carrot top)
- 24 frosted cupcakes
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon mixed with 1 tablespoon sugar in a shaker
Frost your cupcakes, and sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Set aside and start making your candy carrots.
Next step is to make the candy carrots. They are MUCH easier to work with when they are warm. I heated up a rice bag in the microwave and set them on it to get them warm. You could microwave them for a few seconds but you need to be VERY careful cause the hot candy can burn you (that is why I went with the rice bag method).
Cut your Starburst in half. Flatten the top of one end and make the other end pointed. On the flattened end add some green Rips, wrap the flattened end around the Rips and then roll the whole thing to form a carrot shape. Place carrot on top of cupcake and you have an adorable treat.
