Sweet and Easy: Melted Marshmallow Topping

We are big fans of finding easier ways to do tasks that are usually known for frustration, complication or are just plain old time consuming. Things like making frilly toppings or sauces, or fancy toppings for cupcakes. So when we ran across this super simple tip, it left us thinking — "Why didn't we think of this?!"

Ashley over at Not Without Salt stumbled upon this most creative and super simple way to frost, ice or top a cupcake.

She places one marshmallow on top of each freshly-baked cupcake (storebought is fine, but you know homemade will be 100% better!). Then she pops the whole tray back into the oven until gooey.

After the marshmallows have melted a bit, she presses down the tops, which means each cake marshmallow magically transformed into an ooey, gooey marvelous mouthful of fluff!

Make sure to head over to Not Without Salt to see more on the process and check out Ashley's ever fabulous photography.

Thanks Ashley!
