Cupcake of the Week - Marshmallow Cupcakes

If you like your cupcakes sweeter than sweet, these are the ones to go for. This is yet another recipe taken from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, but instead of topping with a mountain of mini marshmallows, I decorated each one with a single, fluffy homemade marshmallow purchased from a local cafe. They looked like mini meringues and tasted like raspberry!

Word of advice though - melting marshmallows is a process of patience! I tried to stir them like I would with chocolate, but they became an elastic mess which stuck to the spoon! So as you can imagine, pouring them into the cupcakes was a disaster - especially as they started to solidify quickly.

Still, these made for a yummy snack at a beach picnic, and got me a few great compliments!
