last week bear's sister gave me this recipe for lucky charms cupcakes. i use the term "recipe" VERY loosely as it basically stated i make a box of betty crocker cupcakes, frost them with canned betty crocker frosting, and then sprinkle them with lucky charms.
i strayed from the recipe just a little...
i made my favourite vanilla cupcakes topped with marshmallow butter cream frosting and ONLY the marshmallows from lucky charms on top, because really, no one wants the non-marshmallow bits...ESPECIALLY on top of a cupcake.
my helpful assistant bear rummaged through the cereal and picked me out a bunch of marshmallows. this bowl is pretty much my dream of what cereal should be:
in keeping with the pot o' gold theme of the lucky charms i used gold cupcake wrappers! why do the foil papers always get wonky when you bake in them? oh well...
i made the butter cream with my usual recipe and added half a bag of mini marshmallows that were warmed up in the microwave. it was sooooo sticky and impossible to pipe, but even though they look a mess, they were magically delicious!
which cereal would YOU like to have in cupcake form?
