Reindeer carrot cupcakes - Method
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Grate the carrots and place in a large bowl (I did mine in the Thermomix on speed 7 for 3 seconds but you can grate by hand as well.)
Beat the eggs together in a small bowl then add to carrots with the oil and combine.
Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and sugar and combine gently. Don’t over stir though!
Line a 12 hole cupcake tin with cupcake cases and then distribute batter evenly.
Cook for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
Beat cream cheese, vanilla paste, butter and icing sugar together until smooth.
Decorate with Woolworths Milk Chocolate Coated Pretzels as antlers, add eyes and Jaffas for your Rudolph noses!
