What You Need

1 package carrot cake mix, prepared as directed on box 1 cup raisins 1 can cream cheese frosting yellow, red & green food coloring sweetened, shredded coconut What You Do

Prepare the carrot cake mix as directed on the box. Stir 1-cup raisins into the batter. Bake cupcakes and cool completely before frosting. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese frosting on each cupcake.

For Grass on Cupcakes:

Mix one cup coconut and 5 drops green food coloring together until the coconut is completely tinted. Dip each cupcake into the coconut, covering the entire surface.

For Carrots:

Tint 1/2 c. cream cheese frosting with yellow and red food coloring until a bright orange color is achieved. Add icing to a plastic baggie, creating an icing bag. Snip 1/8 in. off one corner of the baggie. Pipe a carrot shape onto the coconut on each cupcake. Refer to the picture for an example of how the carrots should look.

For Carrot Tops:

Tint 1/4 c. cream cheese frosting with green food coloring. Add icing to a plastic baggie creating an icing bag. Snip the very tip off one corner of the baggie. Pipe icing on top of carrot. Store cupcakes in a sealed container. Cupcakes, without frosting, can be frozen. Defrost before frosting.
