Last Easter I decided to make cupcakes. In keeping with the “Skip The Frosting” theme, I used PEEPS candy to melt over the cupcake instead of frosting. I’ve received many comments and emails over the past two years about my Skip The Frosting cupcakes and they all stem from one common mistake. You must set your timer five to ten minutes prior to cupcakes being done to place the marshmallow or PEEP on top. Otherwise, if the cake is too set, the marshmallow will simply slide off making a ooey gooey mess on the bottom of your oven. No more complaint mail, please, just follow this one simple instruction. Your cupcakes should still be soft and wet on the top when you place the PEEP on it.
Nothing beats an original:
