Don't worry, they're delicious. And they're easy.
AND I'm going to tell you how to do them.
First things first - here's where I got the ideas, all thanks to Pinterest

|Real Simple - Marshmallow as Cupcake Frosting|
Okay - now let's start the baking party. Woo woo!
Here's the REALLLLLY long list of ingredients. Go get a pen, you'll want to write these details down:
1 box of cake mix
1 can of diet fruity soda
Did you get all that? Here's a photo just in case:
Mix the soda (NOT "pop". Pop is a sound. Or a grandpa. Soda is a drink. Thank you very much.) and cake mix until blended. Bonus points if you get a cool action shot while doing so:
Bake according to the directions on the cake mix box:
|My directions were 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes|
Easiest. Topping. Ever! Just plop a marshmallow on your cupcakes 3-5 minutes before they're done baking and stick them back in the oven to finish:
|You'll have to smoosh the melty 'mallows down while they're still melty.|
I used a spatula sprayed with cooking spray
Both toppings were tasty, but the Cool Whip was incredible. The cupcake tasted EXACTLY like an orange creamsicle. Without the brain freeze.
I brought these to Easter at my parents' house and they were a hit. Dad even went back for seconds (and I'm guessing thirds by now, since I left the extras there).
My next cupcake baking adventure will be chocolate cake with Cherry Coke. Mmmm. The melted 'mallows will be the topping of choice for sure!
What's the craziest cupcake recipe you've tried? Was it a success?
