DIY Wedding Cupcakes – Carrot Cupcake Recipe

In this project I’m going to show you how to make carrot cupcakes. I’ve chosen this flavour of cake not only because it’s one of my favourites, it’s also because you can make carrot cakes the day before your wedding, as they so moist.

Serving Your DIY Wedding Cupcakes

How many times have you been to a wedding where the cake is cut and people don’t eat it? Well why not serve your wedding cupcakes with the coffee after the meal, that’s what we did at our wedding. We went round the tables with our cupcakes arranged on a silver tray to offer our guests. It gave us a great opportunity to speak to all our guests as they chose their cupcakes. We had three different flavours to suit all tastes! We even created two gluten free DIY wedding cupcakes for our wheat intolerant guests.
