Step 1

Preheat oven to 180C.

Step 2

Line 18 holes of a 1/3 cup (80ml) pan with paper cases.

Step 3

Whisk the egg, oil and orange juice in a jug.

Step 4

Combine the carrot, flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, orange rind, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl and add the egg mixture and stir to combine.

Step 5

Spoon the mixture evenly among the prepared pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skew inserted in the centres comes out clean and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Step 6

To make orange cream cheese icing, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and butter in a medium bowl until smooth and then add the icing sugar and orange juice and beat until the mixture is well combined.

Step 7

Spread a little of the icing over the top of each cooled cupcake and arrange the M&M's Minis on the icing to make carrot shapes.
