Easy Carrot Cake for Easter & Garden Parties

Easter is only a few days away and how better to welcome the bunny than with carrot cake!



If you’re a great baker, make your mom’s carrot cake recipe and flat ice it with a rich buttercream frosting . . . if you’re not a great baker, no worries. This cake idea is still for you! Just order your flat iced carrot cake from your local grocer or bakery.


You can keep it simple like the top two carrot cake images, or you can create a cake topper!


You can even embellish carrot cake cupcakes. The Easter bunny will appreciate all of your carrot cake . . . no matter the size! {grin}

To embellish this easy carrot cake and these carrot cake cupcakes, you’ll need:

  • Orange and green (this one is glitter) cardstock
  • Sharp scissors (dull ones will tear your paper and make your cut choppy)
  • Lollipop sticks (available in the baking section of your local craft store)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Orange and white sixlet candies (available at your local candy store)
  • Tip: Use a cake stand with a small lip so that the candies don’t roll


To make the carrot decorations for your cake and cupcakes:

  1. Cut out the carrots. For the small cupcake carrots and side of cake carrots, think snowman, three bumps. Once you have one you like, use it as a template so your carrots are all the same size. For the larger carrots for the top of the cake, cut five bumps.
  2. For the carrot leaves, cut out a lopsided heart.
  3. Attach the leaves to the carrots.
  4. Attach the carrots to lollipop sticks. For the side of the cake, cut the lollipop stick in half and hot glue the flat end to the back of the carrot. For the top of the cake and cupcakes, glue the lollipop stick to the back of the carrot.
  5. Insert the lollipop sticks into your cake and cupcakes.

As always I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
