These cupcakes were soo fun to make. I can't remember what website I saw this on but seeing that Easter is so close, I had to make these! My 5 year old daughter Ericka loves to plant any kind of seeds from apples (her favorite) to cucumbers, to carrots, to green peppers. So she was right by my side while I was putting these cupcakes together.
You will need:
Chocolate cream filled cookies
Orange and green buttercream icing
Icing bag or Ziploc bag
Ziploc bag (for cookies)
Ok lets make these babies!
Take the cupcakes, score a circle in the center
Scoop out the center into a cone shape using a butter knife
Do not throw away (or eat) the center piece just yet
Then take your chocolate filled cookies, place them in a Ziploc bag and crush them, I used a rolling pin.
Icing the top of the cupcake, not the center
Place the center back in and sprinkle the crushed cookies all over to cover the chocolate icing. This is your "potting soil"
Now lets make the carrots! Take your orange icing bag, with your #2a piping tip, start at the bottom of the hole, begin squeezing the bag, filling and pulling up out of the hole. All the way up til you have a small mound on top.
I then just took some green buttercream in a Ziploc bag cut a tiny hole in the corner and just squeezed and pulled up three time to make the carrot leaves.
I also made little tags labeled, carrots!
Then I was curious to see how it looked in the center, so I cut it down the center...
Oh well, lol
