Soooo Worth the Effort!

My eight year old (as of today) picked the most ridiculous cupcake picture he could find for his birthday. It took everything I had in me to not talk him into something, anything, else. I am so glad he picked these. I made minis. I think that standard sized cupcakes would have gone tons faster. They have a yummy marshmallow icing under that layer of dark chocolate. The only problem I ran into was my lack of owning a hand held mixer-Luckily my friend does. I haven't needed one in the 12 years I have had my stand mixer...I was just on amazon browsing for a new hand mixer.

Recipe here.

There are lots of steps, but it is soooo worth the effort, trust me! Besides being a bit time consuming, they came together without a hitch.


  1. These sound yummy and look so fun!
