Decorating Cupcakes

Two simple (but gorgeous) ways to decorate cupcakes.

Marshmallow Cupcakes

I am not the best baker in the world I much rather decorate a cupcake than spend an enormous amount of effort baking them so I will admit I simply used a cake mix to make these. My grandma use to bake delicious cakes but stopped once they started to make cake mixes she said Sara Lee makes a cake just as good as her (although no one ever rivalled her pie crust) For the frosting I used a tub of French Vanilla frosting with 2 parts of Cool Whip so the frosting would be lighter. I cut mini marshmallows diagonally and shook them in a ziploc filled with coloured sugar I bought at the Bulk Barn and I think they looked fantastic once done. They also taste really good who doesn't love marshmallows (and sugar?) Mmm...

Strawberry Topped Cupcakes

I wanted to make another option for those who didn't want that much sugar so I simply sliced strawberries without cutting all the way through and placed them ontop of the cupcakes as a garnish - they took barely any effort but look great.
