Stay Puft Marshmallow Cupcakes

A couple of years ago I made Ghostbusters cupcakes using this recipe from Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies. I wanted to make them again this year for a Friendsgiving gathering when I came across this video for Stay Puft cupcakes and decided to make those instead. I took some liberties and put my own spin on things. Here's how I did it.

Among the ingredients I used:
White Cake Mix
Vegetable Oil
Large and Mini Marshmallows
Marshmallow Creme
Vanilla Frosting
Blue Fondant
Red, White, & Blue Cookie Icing
Black Food Coloring Marker

First, make the cupcakes! Directions are on the cake mix box but you generally need 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1 cup of water and 3 eggs. This in particular made me reminisce about when my Mom would make cakes and let me lick the frosting off the mixer.

While the cupcakes are baking, I rolled out some blue fondant with a rolling pin and put large marshmallows on it to space out what I needed to cut. You should totally use confectioners sugar to prevent sticking as this stuck to everything.

I then designed the heads. I drew the eyes and mouth on with a food coloring marker, I used some blue icing to stick half a mini marshmallow to the top for his cap, and topped that off with some blue & red icing.

Cupcakes are done baking!

I cored out the middle of each cupcake using mini measuring spoon.

I then put marshmallow creme into a Ziplock bag, cut off one tip and piped the creme into each center.

Then I iced all the cupcakes with vanilla frosting. I used pre-filled bags for this.

I cut the blue fondant to appropriate size, put white icing on the borders and attached the Stay Puft head with a toothpick and the cupcakes were done!

I also made Ghostbuster insignias with icing that didn't turn out that well. Eagle eye watchers will also notice I piped out Stay Puft's bow tie but forgot to put them on. Mistakes were made!

But you know what, I was super happy with how these turned out. They were so cute! Next time I make them, they're getting toasted!
