Spring is here and the snow is finally starting to melt! Celebrate with these fun little cupcakes!

– 1 cup all-purpose flour – 1 1/4 tsp baking powder – 1/8 tsp salt – 2 large eggs at room temp – 3/4 cup sugar – 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1/2” cubes – 1/2 cup milk – the higher the fat content the better – 2 tsp vanilla extract – 1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil


For decorating:  – Cupcakes (baked and fully cooled)  – Regular size marshmallows – Blue frosting – Black frosting – Small white sugar deco beads – Mini M&M candies – White, orange, green, and red cooking frosting

Use the black frosting to add eyes and a smile to each marshmallow.  Use the orange cookie frosting to create a carrot nose.

Pipe a base layer of blue frosting on each cupcake.  Add small white sugar beads along the outer edge.

Use the white cookie frosting to create the melting puddle.  Place the marshmallow head near the top of the puddle

Use the black frosting to create twig arms.  Add mini M&M’s for buttons on the melting puddle.

Use any color cookie frosting to pipe on a scarf around the base of the marshmallow head.  Your melting snow people are ready!
