For some reason, cupcakes and beer seem like an ultimate combination–welp, at least for those who actually like these mini-cakes with fluffy homemade marshmallow topping. And so, I whipped up a batch of these babies last night to take along to Foleys Pub as random party favors…and boy were they a hit.
Not only were the drinkies flowing, but these delicious sugary sweets really “hit the spot” at 2 a.m., or so says my friend Esteban Miguel, who was gifted his very own box o’ lil’ cakes which were a late night chaser to beers and burritos.
The frosting is my favorite Marshmallow Fluff based heart attack waitint to happen, with butter flavored shortening, powdered sugar, and of course a splash of vanilla extract. I often like to decorate my cupcakes with those rainbow non-perils and nothing more. What can I say, I’m a simple baker.
