Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Today was quite a gloomy day so I decided to bake some cupcakes for my uncle’s birthday. His favourite treat is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, so that’s exactly what he’s getting but in the form of cupcakes!

The cupcake itself has pistachios, walnuts, pecans and sultanas. Very nutty, so delish! IMG_9302

At first I started sprinkling pistachios around the edges of the icing, which I think looked pretty nice but I decided to go for something cuter by adding the little carrot on the top. I just mixed red and yellow food colouring to a small batch of the cream cheese frosting in order to make the orange.
