This is not the kind of carrot cake recipe that I bet you are thinking of when you think carrot cake. This one is only SHAPED like a carrot. I made it to celebrate our lovely little Zoe’s “big bunny” as he turned seven. She take her relationship with her favorite stuffed animal deep to heart and we support her. It would be great for a garden party theme too, or any other bunny occasion.
1 Bag of POPPED microwave popcorn, 1 bag mini marshmallows, 1/2 cup melter butter, orange food coloring, orange frosting, lettuce
What to Do:
Melt the butter and the mini marshmallows together with a few drops of orange food coloring then mix in the popcorn. Separate the mixture into 4/5 and 1/5 portions and use the larger to shape a carrot.
To make orange frosting, I tried the new Cool Whip frosting and added a little coloring. It is really easy to spread and super delicious too.
Spread orange frosting on the carrot shape then use the other 1/5 of the mixture to cover up the frosting. To finish it off, stick a few pieces of Romaine lettuce out of the top.
It is super yummy and really cute too!
Happy Baking and Happy Birthday Big Bunny,
