King Rabbit Carrot Cupcakes & Frosting

Yesterday (Oct 8th) was my best friend and soul mate David’s 40th birthday so guess what I decided to do? Use the frozen carrot mush we had leftover from juicing earlier and make him some birthday cupcakes! He told me I had hoarded way too much carrot mush and would never use it and so VIOLA I’m going to make it delicious. Our family name means land of the rabbits so what better way to celebrate his life than with CARROTS!? I know.. there really isn’t one. This recipe is catered to him but you could substitute all sorts of things such as adding crushed walnuts, raisins, etc.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LOVE!

King Rabbit Carrot Cupcakes

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup grated apples
  • 1 1/3 cups grated raw carrots
  • Queen Bunny’s Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • King Rabbit Carrot Cupcakes

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease 12 muffin cups or fill 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

    Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix. I like to use my clean hands so that I permeate my heart into whatever I’m making and I can feel that everything is adequately mixes. This is how I make all baked goods, bread, desserts, etc. Love it or leave it.

    Evenly fill the greased muffin cups or muffin liners and bake at 350 degrees for around 18-22 minutes. Check around 18 minutes depending on how quickly your oven bakes, your tins etc. I like to check early as opposed to cooking things too dry. If a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean then remove the muffin tins and let cool before frosting.

    Queen Bunny’s Cream Cheese Frosting

    In a bowl use your mixer to beat the butter and cream cheese until very smooth and creamy while slowly adding the powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Pipe the frosting on the top of the tops of the cupcakes. For quick piping I like to add the icing to a ziplock with the corner cut off and pipe on top of the cupcakes.

    A Perfect Day for a Tea Party

    Today we did our photoshoot and it went very well. I must say I feel bad for Jamie getting stuck with me as a model, though. In every single photo I’m leering from the sun and have my chin in the double position. Ahh! How embarrassing! I’ll be sure to show you her shoot when she uploads it.

    We’re already planning a new one and I can’t wait. This was so much fun.

    If you’re looking for where to buy the goodies in these shots head on over to Sugar Junkie and our shop.

If you haven’t seen the magazine yet it’s also filled with adorable recipes and crafts! I highly recommend it.





    Day With a Camera: Let Them Eat Cake

    Making chocolate and cherry iced mini cupcakes for after dinner~ In the kitschen

    So here I am after group therapy finding nothing of sustenance to eat for lunch.
    (Ok.. I’m being a little picky.)

    I’m playing with the idea of calling my husband to bring home food when he gets back.. I want to ask him what I should make, he always has ideas when I’m uninspired.. I look around the kitchen and see it.

    There’s nothing to eat … but cake.
    I just had to go to the grocery and buy all the ingredients for delicious cherry and chocolate cupcakes last night because I wanted cake.
    Now all I have is cake and I can’t seem to eat it.
    Let me eat cake.

    I eat WAY too many sweets.
    How about you?

    Flying Cupcake Bakery Serves the Perfect Cupcake

    “Let’s go to The Flying Cupcake Bakery” , Wendy suggested. I thought it was a joke… could such a place really exist outside of my dreams? She assured me it was indeed real and we should book a trip immediately. I was much obliged, of course.

    The bakery is thumbs sky high! My coconut cupcake kept me extremely satisfied (even with my insatiable need for sweets!) and I considered buying a box of them. If it weren’t true that I would eat them entirely too soon. :p The bakery (+ ice cream parlor) wasn’t perfect enough with the kitsch yet chic charm~ the surrounding area was also fabulously charming. Meat market and all!
