Happy Birthday Alyssa!

This weekend Alyssa had her best friends over for a sleepover birthday party. It’s a little delayed due to scheduling it on a weekend when she has no swimming! But, it turned out to be awesome! She spent last night playing Just Dance and Sing It with her friends. Well, actually Alex played a little too, but I promised not to put the video online! We made some special cupcakes for the occasion (notice the wrapper? This is the theme to her room now, black and white FRENCH, as she says).
This morning we had some homemade cinnamon rolls that rocked! I’ll post those later, of course! I doubled the recipe and we had 56 cinnamon rolls, they managed to eat over half of them, not bad! And they weren’t little either!

Filled Cupcake

Ingredients

for the cake:

  • 12 oz Marshmallow Fluff
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • pinch of salt

for the chocolate buttercream frosting:

  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 4½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1½ tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

Instructions

for the cupcake:

  1. Prepare cupcakes using your favorite cake mix or recipe (you can use my chocolate cake recipe too).
  2. Beat fluff with butter and powdered sugar for several minutes. Add milk and a pinch of salt. Mix until smooth and creamy.
  3. Fill pastry bag or decorator set, using large tip poke into top of cupcake and squeeze filling into cupcake until it starts to come back out. The cupcake should puff up a little bit!
  4. Frost using canned frosting or homemade (try my buttercream frosting, it’s worth it)!!

for the chocolate buttercream frosting:

  1. In mixer, beat butter until fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar and cocoa, beating well. Slowly add in milk and vanilla. Depending on desired consistency, add more milk as necessary.
