Carrot Cake Disaster/Cakes did not release

Made carrot cake cupcakes (for the 100th time) and none released properly. Tastes delicious but all in pieces. I have frosting and not sure how to save. Lastly, people coming for dinner in 2 hours. UGH!

How about turning it into a carrot cake trifle. Fold softened cream cheese into sweetened whipped cream, the use this to layer with the cupcake pieces and crumbs.

You could also make them into cake truffles. Mix frosting and cake together to form a "dough" and roll it out into small balls. Dust with powdered sugar. yum.

My son had a similar idea. Take the whole mess; cake and frosting and mix with vanilla ice cream and serve. I made carrot cake parfaits: a layer of cake and a layer or frosting then repeated in a parfait glass.

Whirl it in a blender and call it "mousse."
