cupcake for halloween : carrot cake and fluff frosting

It's a long time now I wanted to make a carrot cake. And now Halloween is coming and I though it could be a could treat for the girls. So here is my recipe for carrot cupcake. I found thousands of recipe on the net of course but I wanted 'soft' recipe for kids. Therefore, I didn't want to put any spices nor any crunchy bite in it for them to eat it easily. So I did my own kid's recipe and some with a bit more of ingredients and texture for the adult. I added a 'halloween' frosting that we already tasted and they loved it.

So here you have the ingredients and the recipe.

Kid's version

Cupcakes (22 mini cupcakes)

250g carrots
100g brown sugar
4 eggs
80g gluten free self-raising flour
100g almond powder
1/2 tea spoon salt

- Grate the carrots
- mix the eggs and the brown sugar.
- Then add the almond powder, the salt and the flour.
- Then add the carots.
- Pour into your cupcake shapes and put in the oven for 15min. at 180º

Fluff frosting

150g softened butter
150g icing sugar
200g fluff
1 tea spoon vanilla
Quantities are given as direction but you have to taste the frosting to get it the way you want. This recipe gives a nice marshmallow taste to the frosting that kids love.

- Mix butter and icing sugar.
- Then add fluff and vanilla.
- You can add some colour in it. For Halloween I added orange one.
- Put the frosting in a pipe and pipe as you wish.
