If you did a Google search for cafe sucre farine cupcakes and checked out the results, you might surmise that I enjoy making cupcakes. And if you scroll down the long list, you might be convinced that I just hang out all day making cupcakes – and that decorating them is one of my strong suits.
The first presumption is true, the second, not so much. I do enjoy making (and eating) cupcakes, but decorating can be a struggle for me. There’s often weeks or months in between when I make cupcakes and I always feel a bit rusty when it comes to decorating. I have to practice, practice, practice to get it right and, when I’m finished, sometimes only two or three out of a dozen come out looking pretty.
I guess that’s why I was so thrilled to discover this fun marshmallow flower technique for turning out gorgeous cupcakes. I’d seen examples on Pinterest awhile back, but didn’t have the opportunity to try it till now.
Wow! Was I surprised at how quickly my first attempt came together. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the results were! I used my Easiest, Best Ever Chocolate Cupcake recipe for the base and frosted them with my Best Ever Vanilla Buttercream. But instead of telling you all about the simple technique, Scott and I put together a short little video to show you. After all, seeing is believing, right? And I’m certain you’ll be a believer after you watch!
Oh, and if you haven’t read our last two posts, you might be wondering what the 10,000 Cupcakes, One Great Cause campaign is. It’s a wonderful collaboration to help raise funds for breast cancer research. KitchenAid will donate up to $10,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation this October – and you can be part of it! For every cupcake you make and share on Instagram and/or Twitter, they will donate $1. You can enter as often as you want! So you get to have fun in the kitchen while helping this extremely worthy cause.
