Quick Marshmallow Frosting

By on Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Do you run out of energy to make the frosting after you’ve already baked a whole batch of cupcakes?  Or do you need to head out the door and you don’t have time to frost your cupcakes?  Or maybe you just don’t want more dishes to clean up?  I came across the perfect solution.  Just add marshmallows (see here) to the tops of your cupcakes 5 minutes before they’re done baking, and then spread out the melted marshmallow over the cupcakes.

April Fool’s Day Cupcakes

It’s not too late to celebrate April Fool’s Day with some Spaghetti and Meatballs cupcakes. Here’s one way to do it, from The Farm Girl: Pipe on noodles using small round icing tip. For meatballs, dunk some Ferrerro Rocher chocolates in raspberry jelly–yum!

Easter Egg Cupcakes

By on Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Easter is my favorite cupcake holiday. You can do anything you want with pastels and you’re good to go–so many options! Plus, I’m kind of obsessed with bunnies. Anyway, here is my first attempt this year. (For the grass, I used Wilton tip 233.) If you try this, I HIGHLY recommend Starburst jelly beans. I don’t even like candy, and these are delicious!

Colorado Cupcakes

By on Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Last week I visited my friend in Colorado and was lucky enough to see both Boulder and Denver while on my trip.  In Boulder we stopped into Tee and Cupcakes to try three of their cupcakes.  I loved the outside of the cupcake shop, which is shown above, and since we were there pretty early in the day there was a wide selection of cupcakes to choose from.  We decided on the following flavors: girl scout cookie samoas, chocolate with salted caramel frosting, and white on white or vanilla with vanilla frosting.

My friend and I agreed that while we liked the creative flavors and the appearance of the cupcakes we didn’t love the consistency of the frosting or the cake.  The frosting we almost like whipped cream or cool-whip with a very airy texture.  We also weren’t crazy about the cake consistency and flavor so overall we thought they were good cupcakes but not great.
