Banish The Blues

My failproof way to get through a Monday is by baking. Either I get up crazy early and make some muffins or I count down the hours until I can get home and start crack-a-lackin' in the kitchen.

Yesterday I found myself Googling rainbow cupcakes. I've made them before and they are fabulous. But I decided to try something a little different this time.

We've all heard of marshmallow icing and marshmallow fondant but have you ever thought to just add plain marshmallows as a topping. I didn't until yesterday and the result was amazing. You know how good a marshmallow is when you roast it over a fire, imagine that gooey warmness all over a cupcake. Mmmm, happy place.

If you wanna try it, all you have to do is take out your cupcakes about 5 minutes before they're ready and place a marshmallow on top of them. After a minute take them out and use the back of the spoon to press them down so they cover the entire cupcake. This is when they can be a bit sticky so I suggest rather using a silicone spatula or add some flour to your spoon.

Let them cook for the remainder of the time. Then take them out and cool. Once cool, enjoy the happiness!
