carrot cupcakes just out of the oven
Yesterday we organised a bake sale in my house with the Mums from my kids school.
So, after a busy week, I returned from Dublin on Thursday and turned my Kitchen into a Cupcake factory.
Magnolia bakery Vanilla Cupcakes (back) and Martha Stewart Carrot Cupcakes (front)
Then yesterday morning I dusted off the china teasets and set the table.

Everyone brought something
I was too slow to snag Vanessa's Lemon cake.......... but I did manage to grab some of these yummy chocolate goodies.
We drank Tea and ate cake for 3 hours!
and we managed to raise €346 for Haiti........... I cannot think of a nicer way to do so,
Oh! ......Just in case any of you were wondering what a 10 month old looks like with a mouth full of cake, here is some photographic evidence
For the Magnolia Bakery recipe you can go Here
For the BEST Carrot Cupcakes go Here.......I highly recommend these....
PS: I halve the quantity of icing/frosting in both recipes
