I want to fill my Hot Coco cupcakes with marshmallow. Do you think the fluff right out of the jar will be ok or should I add some powdered sugar to it before I pipe it in? I am worried it will be too goey and messy. Any suggestions????

Thanks so much!

It will work just fine. My grandmother used to do that ALL the time with chocolate cupcakes. It tastes *so* good. It is a little sticky, but not horribly so. It soaks into the cupcake a bit too. One of my favorite treats from childhood.

GREAT!!!!! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif Thanks! Now, do you know a good marshmallow frosting? I was thinking about just adding fluff to the crusting cream cheese frosting, but I don't want to taste the cream cheese too much. Maybe just add to frosting pride???? I am not a fan of buttercream, I have never been able to make a good batch.

Thank you so much, I love this site, such a never-ending source of expert advise!!!!

Hmmm... I just like them plain without frosting, but I am not a big frosting fan in general. I usually make meringue based buttercream, but I think so long as your BC isn't too sweet it would be fine and not compete with the fluff filling.

The only frosting that I can think of that would be marsmallow-like would be a a 7 minute icing or something like that. It's good and rather sticky so not so great for decorating with. If you want to decorate them I'd just do a thin layer of your butterceam. =]

I did find a Marshmallow Creme and Cream Cheese Buttercream recipe by JanH. I am gonna give a try, she is a cake superstar so I am sure it will be good. I am planning a thin layer of chocolate ganache then the little santa hats on top. Wish me luck!!!!

post #7 of 18 here they are. Just thought I would share with you. Not professional quality, but still kinda cute. This is my take on the melting snowman. The Santa hats didn't turn out as well as I wished, my frosting needed to be stiffer, but I didn't have time to adjust.

They were NUMMY by the way. The marshmallow fluff was just the right amount of gooeyness....thanks for your help!!!!

Thanks JanH...that means a lot coming from you! I used your recipe for the Marshmallow Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting for the white part of the hats. was nummy. I was wondering though, I couldn't get it to stabilize very well, is this normal?

I used the recipe on this site, but I can't remember where I found it. But it is a modified WASC recipe. Here it is so you don't have to go searching for it.

Chocolate WASC (macsmom's method ) - MacsMom

2 dark chocolate cake mixes
2 c cake flour (gives it a lighter crumb)
2 1/4 c sugar (extra sugar for moistness)
1/3 c cocoa powder
3/4 t salt (less salt because of the cocoa powder)
2 pkg chocolate fudge pudding mixes
8 egg whites or 6 whole eggs
2 c sour cream
2 c coffee
1 c chocolate milk (extra liquid because chocolate mixes tend to be thick)

Hot Cocoa cake - MacsMom

Follow my chocolate WASC recipe, with this substitution:
Use 2 -2/3 c hot cocoa (cold) and add an extra package of hot cocoa mix to the batter.

Wow, they look great.  Your ganache also looks perfect.  Can you share your ganache recipe/ratio heavy cream to chocolate?  What kind of chocolate?
