I am still on a quest to find the perfect vanilla cupcake recipe, but in the meantime I thought I’d share this super easy and beautiful cupcake topping. I’ll share the the recipe for the accompanying sugar cookies next week.
- 12 cupcakes
- 1 batch frosting (I used half of this to frost the cupcakes and the other half to frost the leaf sugar cookies):
- 1 cup butter
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 tablespoons whipping cream (milk also works)
- Food coloring (optional)
- About ½ bag small marshmallows
- Pink sprinkles
- Leaf cookies
I cut the mini marshmallows in half diagonally.
I mixed the mini marshmallows with the sprinkles working in small batches. When needed I dipped the marshmallow halves in the sprinkles individually to make sure that they were well coated.
I frosted the cupcakes. Starting on the outer edge of a cupcake, working in concentric circles, and moving toward the center of the cupcake, I stuck the marshmallow halves (with the cut side up) in the frosting.
I served the cupcakes on a platter with the leaf cookies.
