Easy carrot sheet cake
October 21, 2022 by admin

Easter is coming and you need to feed a small crowd? This super quick and easy carrot sheet cake is sure to be a hit! I’ve made the frosting with plant-based butter as well, and it worked great if that’s something you prefer. The carrots and the adorable little bunny are made from shaped coloured pieces of fondant, and he’s digging up dirt made of chocolate graham cracker crumbs. You get to dodge the particularly challenging task of building a full bunny out of fondant, and instead only need to build the booty, tail, and feet! You might find it helpful to use the side of a toothpick to make the indentations on the carrots and make the carrot stem by snipping several times into a piece of green fondant. This was so much fun to make and the décor truly completes it!

In a small-med bowl, combine all the filling ingredients. Mix well to coat.
In another bowl, combine the crisp ingredients. Use a fork or your fingertips to rub them together to moisten.
Add ½ the apples to a microwave-safe mug. Top with ½ the crisp, roughly crumbled over the surface. Add the remaining apples on top. Finish with the remaining crumbled crisp. Microwave 4 ½ minutes on medium power (60%). Mug will be very hot, let cool a few minutes, then top with a scoop of ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
