Peep! Skip The Frosting Cupcake

Easter Cupcakes

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.

    In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name cup cake or cupcake. In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or molds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has remained, and the name of “cupcake” is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup.:^
