  5. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, filling the muffin cups almost to the top. Bake for about 20 minutes or until nicely golden.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare your lemon glaze. Mix in a bowl powdered sugar and fresh lemon juice from the other half of the lemon.
  7. When muffins are finished, let them chill for at least 10 minutes. Pour the glaze over the muffins. Place your marzipan carrots on each muffin and enjoy!
