24 "carrot" cupcakes in jar

>> Thursday, September 29, 2011

one of my friends from college, kat, asked me to make some cupcakes for a bridal shower she was hosting in nyc. she loved the rainbow cakes in a jar i made but needed something more bridey (is that even a word? let's just go with it).

so i searched the internet and found martha stewart's genius idea for 24 "carrot" cupcakes. i followed her directions exactly except for a few things:

  • i didn't make the cake from scratch (sorry kat, this gal was busy)
  • i baked the cupcakes in muffin tins, cut them into thirds and layered the cake into mason jars with the icing (this blog gives exact directions)
i was really surprised at how great these turned out. i had never worked with fondant before and my first experience with the stuff wasn't bad at all. everything was much easier than i had thought. take a look...

special thanks to my sister for making these adorable little tags
