How to make devil's food cupcakes with marshmallow frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Measure out everything but the eggs directly into your mixer bowl.
2. Mix on low speed just until incorporated.
3. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
4. Add eggs, beat on high speed again for 2 minutes.
Measure out into cupcake pan lined with cupcake papers. A 2″ ice cream scoop works great for this. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly in the pan then transfer to a rack to cool completely before frosting.
Add a few drops of food coloring to the marshmallow frosting to achieve desired color. I chose blue and green to come up with "tiffany" or "robin's egg" blue. Top with sprinkles.
