Rich chocolate cupcakes and mocha buttercream nestled in an edible marshmallow mug…how much fun is that??
The past two posts have been full of my adventures with my friend Megan from Happily Ever After Cakes. We made chocolate cut-out cookie pops decorated with royal icing and fondant-covered cupcakes decorated with fun ladybugs and caterpillars. This is the third and final project from that weekend and I just love how it turned out!
This project starts with easy mini mocha cupcakes with mocha buttercream frosting. You can stop there and they are just wonderfully yummy –even without the mug!
The mug uses my new-found love of marshmallow fondant to add a little “wow” factor to the cupcakes.
Let’s start with the cupcakes: (printer friendly recipe)
