Peppermint Cupcakes with Marshmallow Fluff White Chocolate Frosting
December 03, 2018

I made these last Christmas, exactly as written (I was a completely novice baker, so too scared to change a thing) & they were a nightmare. They came out so sunken, I could have used them as tart shells. They were ridiculously dense, dry & still somehow sticky. The frosting was enough to make me swear off marshmallow whip forever - absolutely horrendous to mix. After a year of baking at least 1 thing a week, every week, I now know these are beaten WAY too much & the proportions are just out of whack. I like the flavor combo though, so used a GOOD vanilla cupcake recipe & subbed pepp extract for vanilla, then made a 7-minute frosting flavored with marshmallow extract (got it at my local bakery) & they were fantastic.
