S’mores cupcakes!

17 Oct

Who doesn’t love s’mores? They are a childhood favorite that bring back memories of camping and adventures. They remind me of late nights around the camp fire with ghost stories! When I couldn’t resist tasting the meringue part of the Swiss Meringue frosting, I couldn’t help but notice the remarkable marshmallow flavor and the moment I did I knew that one day I would pair it with a chocolate cupcake and call it a s’more.

If you feel like using a boxed cake read lazy cakes for a few tips on how to make them taste like a from scratch cake.
