Sprouting Carrot Chocolate Cupcakes

Looking for two ways to impress your guests this Easter? These sprouting carrot cupcakes are sure to do the trick. To make the surpise filling, cut a cone-shaped chunck out of your baked cupcakes with a paring knife and fill it with a heaping pile of orange icing. And be sure not to discard the cake pieces you cut out — you'll want to use them to create your crumbly and fudgey faux-soil topping.
