Miranda Gore Browne's Baking Tips #BakingIf you’ve got any picnics planned or even a Sunday lunch in the coming weeks, these delicious carrot cupcakes by Miranda Gore Browne make a great sweet treat. The sponge of the cupcake is made using grated carrot, once baked this is then topped with good helping of cream cheese frosting, and completed with a sugar flower.

For an extra special touch Miranda has used pretty cupcake wrappers, which wrap around the case of the cupcake.
