Swirly S'more

Recipe:  Inspired by the Graham Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting from Martha Stewart Cupcakes (unfortunately the recipe is not available online)
Modifications:  I used a Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix for the cupcakes.  The recipe originally calls for homemade graham flour based cupcakes but who has the time or $$$ to look for graham flour from a specialty store??  (Even though I *heart* Martha she is so impractical at times) The original cupcake is then suppose to be topped with a ganache and homemade marshmallow frosting.  I omitted the ganache (I think Triple Chocolate Fudge is enough), but I did make the homemade marshmallow frosting.  It's basically a gelatin based marshmallow recipe (make sure to add 1+ tsp of vanilla) that you QUICKLY pipe onto the cupcake before it starts to set-up (easier said than done).  It's a pretty messy process, but totally worth it.  After applying the frosting I stuck in a graham cracker stick and used my trusty kitchen blow torch for the browning.

 "Free-form" Cupcake
I'm not sure which one I prefer
Freeform Smore


Caution:  If you ever use the blow torch on a cupcake - turn the flame WAY low and use a sweeping motion from the top of the cupcake - not at a horizontal angle - or you will catch the cupcake liner on fire.  I'm not kidding here . . .

Is it awful that I ate all 3 of the delicious cupcakes I brought home? I decided I was doing Porter a favor by not sharing - it's not good for him to eat so much sugar, probably stunts his growth. :O)

Joan - as you can see, I shared them with a few friends on Sunday (Porter called them sticky, sticky, sticky). I'm hoping to have something even better for May!

Leighann - you go girl! You need to put some meat on those bones.
