Marshmallow Flower Cupcakes Recipe

c 3a

Ingredients:

Cupcakes

150g butter, softened

150g caster sugar

150g self-raising flour

3 medium eggs

2tbsp milk

Few drops of vanilla extract

12-hole muffin tins, lined with paper cases

Decorations

1 bag of fruit flavored marshmallows

Colored glitter or sugar

Sprinkles or dragees for the centers

Lemon buttercream

110g of softened butter

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

2 teaspoons of lemon zest

500g icing sugar

 

Instructions:

Set the oven to 190°C or Gas 5. Tip the butter into a bowl and beat it until it’s softened.  Add the sugar, flour, salt, eggs and milk and whisk until the mixture is smooth.  Use an ice-cream scoop, or spoon, to divide the mixture between all the paper cases.

Place both muffin tins in the oven and bake for 15 mins. Remove the tins from the oven.  Leave the cakes to cool in the tins for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

Cut the marshmallows diagonally so they look like petals and dip the sticky side in your colored sugar or glitter (I color sugar with a little petal dust) and repeat until you think you have enough to cover your cakes. You will need to do one cake at a time so the buttercream does not dry out.

Spread buttercream the top of your cake, spreading generously to the outside edge.

Start by placing a row of marshmallows in the buttercream (Glitter/sugar side up) around the edge close to the paper until you have a full circle. Repeat three times working your way into the middle.  I normally do three rows but you may like more.

Once you have finished your rows place sprinkles or dragees in the center.

Repeat on the other cakes until you have the amount you would like.
