The frosting is a marshmallow fluff that works well with the deep chocolate cupcakes. Alone, the frosting is very sweet and sticky. The cupcake balances the sweetness. I'm very novice in my cake and cupcake decorating skills, and don't have any fancy tips. To decorate the cupcakes, I used a spatula and worked the frosting up as much as I could without it going over the sides. I had a bunch of frosting left over (since I followed the directions and ingredients for a 2 layer cake).
My guests were very impressed with the shiny frosting. I really like this recipe, and the frosting was a nice change from a rich buttercream. Check out the other creations from my fellow bakers at Club Baked.
