Skip the Frosting

The kids have some friends coming over this afternoon so I decided to make some cupcakes but silly me, when I got home, I realised I had no icing sugar to frost them.  I remember seeing a simple way to frost cakes using marshmallows on Pinterest so I decided to give it a go.

Here is what I did:
1.  I made a batch of cupcakes using my trusty Martha Stewart Vanilla Cupcake recipe.  I always use this recipe and I have never had anyone turn their nose up at it.

2.  About 2 minutes before the cupcakes were ready, I popped a marshmallow on top of each cupcake
3.  I continued to bake the cakes for another 2 (or so) minutes
4.  The cupcakes were taken out of the oven and left to cool.  
5.  I spread the melted marshmallow evenly (well as best as I could) over each cake.  
5.  Now it's time to enjoy them!  I think that the kids will devour these super quick.
