Next we got busy making a birthday cake for Shoeshine. Inspired by Coca Cake Cupcake's hungry caterpillar cupcake party train cake we set about doing our own version. I'm not a great fan of sponge cupcakes, so I decided we would do a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I used the recipe for the cake and icing from the hummingbird bakery cookbook (although I did reduce the sugar and oil in the cake as I find their recipes are quite sweet and rich normally).
So we got busy mixing and then spooning into cupcake cases, Little Chick absolutely loved doing this and I was really impressed with how accurate she was, I think her tray was neater than mine!
All set for a party!
