    I made these for a True Blood party I went to a couple weeks ago. Complete hit! They were sooo perfect for it! I fell in love with the marshmallow frosting – I had to stop eating it to put it on the cupcakes!

    Thank you for the wonderful ideas!!

    I just wish with all my heart we could get huckleberries here! THey are my favorite fruit and berry and yet I have never taste one fresh before in my life! I know every place within a 80 mile radius that can get jam or preserves, and even a place that can get taffy, but no fruit. 🙁

    THe exciting thing, is I just got booked for a wedding in Montana next July.. I am HOPING that it will still be season for huckleberries then?? I want to see them in perosn, bring them home, eat them, have milkshakes, pies, EVERYTHING i can find if I can! I hope!ReplyCancel

    I love this recipe. The contrast between the red cupcakes and the glossy Marshmallow is captivating. However, the use of unpasteurized egg whites scares me. According to the recipe, they are never cooked or heated in anyway.


  • Lauri M - 01/19/2012 - 9:55 am

    Seriously… have me going out in the -22 weather to get ingredients, now that’s just plain sad!

    Love your blog!


  • Tara - 01/21/2012 - 5:15 pm

    This looks delicious do we have to beat the egg whites before putting them in?ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 01/23/2012 - 11:40 am

      Hi Tara,

      You don’t have to beat the egg whites before adding to the Cake recipe.
      As for the Marshmallow frosting…..Beat it to death!!!

  • Candy - 06/24/2012 - 9:58 am

    I used this recipe for the marshmallow frosting for my smores cupcake. it’s way better than the marshmallow fluff you buy in the store. It also torches nicely just so you know.ReplyCancel

  • Erika - 08/29/2012 - 9:20 am

  • Kaitlin - 10/16/2012 - 7:21 pm
