I almost exactly copied the PaleOMG carrot cupcake recipe for the actual cake. It never turns out anything like hers, but tastes pretty damn good, and that’s the main thing!
For the icing, another recipe that doesn’t turn out anything like the pictures promise – the Carrots ‘n’ Cake fudge cookies! Minus the cocoa and honey, plus a small wedge (about 40g) of creamed coconut. I was going for a kind of bird’s nest thing, so scraped it over with a fork to add some texture.
I topped each “nest” off with some homemade marzipan made into mini eggs, dusted with a little ground cinnamon. Heaven!
