...Are You A Hostess Cupcake?
I've seen this recipe floating around the net for several months now. At first, I was hesitant about one of my cupcakes being compared to a factory packaged cupcake. Not to mention that I secretly love Hostess cupcakes and would be crushed if my cupcakes sucked. The recipe is from Food and Wine, and while it is reminiscent of the Hostess version it does not come close to being a "real" Hostess cupcake. The problem was the marshmallow filling, it just wasn't as good as Hostess's. The cake part had a mild chocolate taste, not too dark. The icing on top was great, I liked it better than Hostess's but alas, the marshmallow goodness was not there. Do not fret my cupcake lovers, these cupcakes were a crowd pleaser. Even though they did not meet my standards, everyone at work squealed and cried for one. I felt like some sort of cupcake rock star. It was great!
