This Sunday is our beloved mom’s 70th birthday. We had grand plans for an epic celebration. That’s until a pandemic decided to get in our way. But our mom is way too important to us that we must celebrate her 70 years. So we’ve planned a virtual birthday party complete with decorations, games, and, of course, birthday cake. Extra special carrot cake cupcakes with floral bouquet frosting for our extra special mom.
Happy Birthday Mom. We think we turned out great. Thank you!
1 box of carrot cake mix, plus ingredients on the back of the box
Homemade cream cheese buttercream frosting dyed pink and orange
First, cream the butter and Crisco in a mixing bowl. Mix on low speed for a couple of minutes until smooth and creamy. Add in the vanilla and cream cheese and mix again until very smooth. Gradually add the powdered sugar until it’s all combined. It will be very stiff! Then begin adding milk until you reach the desired consistency for decorating.
Make cupcakes according to the directions on the back of the box.
Decorated the cupcakes using a piping bag and frosting tips to look like a floral bouquet.
