Adorable Mini Gluten Free Carrot Cakes that are perfectly decorated for Easter! These cute little desserts are super easy, gluten free and lower fat.
This is the story of the time that I learned that it isn’t a good idea to get up at 4am and try to do a whole weekend of blogging in ONE day, because you have family coming over and have no other time.
By the time you get to the final round of baking and photographing, you’re throwing plastic eggs and grass into the mix and thinking It’s the cutest thing to ever happen to planet Earth.
And then you go to edit the pictures. And you realize that you hate every single one of them. AND then you realize that you kinda sorta already ate all the gluten free cupcakes and don’t really want to make more.
So, you post them anyway.
And then you proceed to talk about how ugly they are, only to draw more attention to the fact that you hate them, because you’re smart like that.
Just like with the Cilantro Lime Tilapia, I don’t know why I tell you these things. But, I kinda just blurt out whatever goes on in my little head. In case you didn’t pick up on that.
These carrot cake baskets are a little twist on my Gluten Free Carrot Cake Cupcakes but I got a little crazy and put the cream cheese frosting inside AND on top. Whoa guys.
I may not love the pictures of these, but I do love how super simple they are and I pretttyy sure that you will too! You just have to make a cupcake, scoop out a little bit of the middle (and , yes, you should eat all the scooped out middles…just to make sure the cupcakes taste good right? Quality control is important) and then fill ‘er up with icing. I could lie to you and tell you that I picked the coconut from a tree and hunted down the Easter bunny to get his eggs. You know, just to impress you. But, I didn’t. Sorry to disappoint.
Side note: Do you guys have a fav Easter treat? I have a 3 way tie with these Cadbury Mini Eggs, The Cadbury Cream Egg or Milka Lil Scoops. You may not have heard of the last one, I don’t think the USA has them. Seriously, you should all book a flight to Canada just to get one. They’re 4 chocolate eggs that are filled with either chocolate or vanilla cream, and then you break off the top of the egg and eat the filling with a cute little spoon. They also are packed in adorable little purple egg crates. I die.
The hubs told me that he didn’t really like Mini Eggs. I know, who is he? How-ev-er every time he walks out of the kitchen he is eating the leftovers. I spy a fibber!
Usually I have some witty way to end a post. But, I’ve been studying all week (we’ll talk about that later) and my brain is fried-o-rama, soooo I’m just telling you that you’ll like these and you should make them.
And, I do promise that no Easter bunnies were harmed in the collection of the Mini Eggs.
