Cap'n Crunch Cupcakes w/ Peanut Butter Marshmallow Frosting

I know I've been kind of a slacking with my blog posts lately, but I promise I've been busy baking cupcakes. Last week I baked a batch of chocolate mini cupcakes w/ pink cream cheese frosting for a baby shower. I made a few of them look like baby rattles by inserting a lollipop stick w/ a gumdrop attached to the bottom and adding a pink bow around the middle. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures, but you can only imagine how adorable they were!

I also baked a batch of chocolate raspberry cupcakes w/ raspberry buttercream frosting for one of my co-workers who needed them for a potluck. Again, no pictures, but I recently made chocolate raspberry cupcakes w/ a swiss meringue buttercream frosting and they looked very similar.

My last post was about a new blog I stumbled upon called Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. Yesterday I decided to try out one of her cupcake recipes. I made Cap'n Crunch cupcakes w/ peanut butter marshmallow frosting. Words cannot express how delicious they were. The frosting is very similar to the frosting I use when I make peanut butter high hats, but those are dipped in melted chocolate. The peanut butter marshmallow frosting on its own is so light and fluffy it melts in your mouth. I surprisingly have a few left over and if I don't eat them all while I'm home today I will donate them to trivia night tonight at Boston's. If you don't have plans this evening get yourself over to Boston's at 8pm for happy hour, trivia, and a chance to win some of these yummy cap'n crunch cupcakes!
