METHOD

  • Step 1.

    Preheat your oven to 175°C and line a cupcake tin with paper liners.
  • Step 2.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine 175g of self-raising flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • Step 3.

    In another bowl, whisk together 150ml of vegetable oil, 100g of caster sugar, and 50g of brown sugar until smooth.
  • Step 4.

    Beat in 2 large eggs, one at a time, into the oil and sugar mixture, ensuring each is well incorporated.
  • Step 5.

    Stir in 150g of grated carrots and 50g of chopped walnuts into the wet ingredients.
  • Step 6.

    Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined.
  • Step 7.

    Spoon the batter into the prepared cupcake liners, filling each about two-thirds full.
  • Step 8.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Step 9.

    For the frosting, whisk 3 large egg whites and 150g of caster sugar over a bain-marie until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is warm to the touch.
  • Step 10.

    Remove from heat and continue whisking until stiff peaks form and the meringue has cooled, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Step 11.

    Pipe or spread the meringue frosting onto each cooled cupcake.
  • Step 12.

    Top each cupcake with a confectionery carrot and a dusting of crushed ginger biscuits.
  • Step 13.

    Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
