These classic decorations are perfect for popping on top of carrot cakes, carrot muffins or little carrot cupcakes. However, if you don’t fancy a carrot flavoured bake then we think these are pretty cute looking on whatever baking you happen to have made.

How about using them to decorate Easter-themed bakes? Using very few ingredients and taking moments to make, you can have these made easily while your cakes bake.

Ingredients

  • 36g orange fondant
  • 10g green fondant

Step 1

Roll the green fondant into long green sausage shapes.


Step 4

Cut them into sections of 4 and roll one end to a point.

Using the water brush, glue the point of the green stem with a little water into the carrot and arrange the finished carrots on top of your cake.
