Peppermint Cupcakes with Marshmallow Fluff White Chocolate Frosting
December 08, 2016

Had really high hopes for these peppermint cupcakes. I should have read all of the reviews first before making. The batter seemed like a great consistency. Like the others, my cupcakes puffed up in the oven and then fell like a souffle. I tried to salvage them. I took the overrun off and crumbled it into a bowl. The flavor of the cupcakes was wonderful, which is why I gave these three stars. I made a chocolate ganache to fill the areas that were sunk in. I mixed the crumbs into the ganache and spread it onto the cupcakes. A little while later, I made the frosting. I had never made nor eaten a marshmallow frosting before. I must have done something wrong because it was awful. I tried spreading some with a knife; there was no way I could get that frosting in or out of a pastry bag. I was so disappointed with the end product. I had made these specifically for a bake sale. Thankfully, I had two other things that I made as well. The only change I made was to use 1 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract and no almond extract. Like I said, the flavor of the cupcakes is good. I might work with the recipe some more to see if I can get them to bake better.
