Memorial Weekend Cupcakes- Marshmallow Frosting




This weekend was bitter sweet. We said goodbye to a dear FRIEND we had made over the year. She was here working on another Masters degree- from the Ukraine and while we are sad to see her go, we rejoice in knowing that she will soon be home with her family and friends in the Ukraine and thankful to God that we crossed paths. 


Olya, you are a blessing sweetie-
may God continue to move in your life!

Yesterday our town had its "Memory Days Parade"... It was hilarious {and that is all I'm gonna say about that!}. After that we went to the lake with Olya and another friend Sarah, for fishing and just to enjoy the sun that has finally come out {yay}.


So for dinner I made a Peruvian dish, Lomo Saltado, for our family and friends. It was a sort of "farewell dinner"... followed by white cupcakes topped with MARSHMALLOW FROSTING {recipe to follow}. It took all of ten minutes to make the frosting, and that is stretching it...

Don't they look yummy?! 



Marshmallow Frosting

3/4/ cup butter, softened at room temp
2 cups of confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow fluff/ creme

Beat butter in a large bowl, until fluffy.
Beat in the confectioners' sugar,  milk, and vanilla extract, until smooth.
Beat in marshmallow fluff until light and fluffy.
*Beat in coloring, if desired.

Spoon into pastry bag with desired tip and top cupcakes, add sprinkles, and let it sit for 15 minutes.

Enjoy!


Well, I am off to WATCH another episode of Band of Brothers, work on my mini GARDEN, and PAINT a canvas for a project I am working on for our lil man... 

Happy Memorial Weekend & God Bless!
