Love the taste of marshmallows? If that’s a ‘yes siree!’, then  you’re gonna love this Marshmallow Buttercream recipe.

It’s simply delicious.

Bowl lickin’ good.

Fluffy and light, this Marshmallow Buttercream pipes easily onto cupcakes and covers cakes like a dream.

And I’ve fallen even deeper in love photographing these cupcakes after a rainstorm and in stifling 95° heat (known properly as Texas sauna blessings.)

Even though the cupcakes were in the shade, it was a miracle when the buttercream held its peaks.  Ahhh-maa-zing.

A real miracle.

‘Cause let me tell you…there’s nothing like surviving  Texas in July. 

Another thing that I love about this Marshmallow Buttercream: pop the leftover icing into the fridge and make truffles.

The truffles are to ‘swoon’ for. 

Just make sure to hide the secret stash (in the fridge or freezer) ’cause it’s mind-boggling how easy it is for others to find. Label the container something disgusting, anything that refrains others from lid poppin’ and exploring.

‘Cause gross labeling is an extra delectable privacy sort of thing so you don’t freak out when the truffles come up mysteriously missing…

…and nothin’ is so disheartening as ‘disappearing truffles.’

And just for you, here’s a YouTube video link on how to make truffles.

Ain’t I sweet?

Sure ‘mam!
