Last night I slaved over carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, using some fun baking supplies my mom brought me.  This included these sprinkles, these cupcake liners (shaped like a flower) and this cute little guy!

The carrot cake recipe is from my Betty Crocker cookbook.  I made this cake for Thanksgiving, but used a rectangular cake pan.  This was the first attempt as cupcakes and they seemed to turn out fine.

The cream cheese frosting (also a Betty Crocker find) is made by combining:

1 package of cream cheese
1/4 cup of butter or margarine
A very large amount of icing sugar (approx 4 cups)

After a couple of hours, a very messy kitchen, and sticky hands, this was the finished product.

Happy Easter until next year!
