I am planning to make mini carrot cake cupcakes for teacher appreciation at my kids' school. My recipe calls for walnuts, but I am wondering if it would be wise to just omit them? They are just for the staff, but there are so many rules about nuts these days... the kids are not allowed to bring anything with peanut butter to school... what do you think I should do?
Also, I am looking for ideas for a cute, quick & easy decoration to put in the center of the icing on the mini cupcakes. I am a full time student/single mom of 3 so I really don't have time to do anything fancy!
No do not do anything with nuts. As for decorating them, go with something simple. I work for the Toronto District School Board in Ontario and their symbol (logo) is an apple. I would check to see if this is something you can do.
