Today’s Extreme Housewife loves Orange and Carrot Cupcakes!

Nom nom, today’s demand was my husband and his friend absolutely needing cake. We decided to go for carrot and orange cupcakes with an orange marscapone icing. They have got a basic sponge mix, with grated carrot, walnuts, he zest and juice of one orange and a dash of all spice and cinnamon in and the icing was made up of marscapone, icing sugar and a touch of fresh orange juice.

They came out wonderfully moist and it was my first test of my 6 section silicon cake tray from Poundland. To be honest, for £1 I didn’t hold out much hope that it would do what it said on the tin, but it was really excellent. The cakes came away cleanly after 2 minutes cooling out of the oven. This tray produced quite a tall cupcake, so I think they would make an excellent, but smaller sized muffin. This may be my next test!!
