Frosting recipe from: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fluffy-white-frosting/
I'm sorry if any of you are disappointed that this is a cake box recipe and not actual chocolate cake from scratch. But if you check out my other videos on YouTube I have plenty from scratch recipes for chocolate cupcakes, brownie cupcakes, or vanilla flavored. But, the cake box cupcakes to me were delicious either way.
This combination of chocolate cake and frosting tasted almost like a hostess cupcake to me. And to me that was amazing. The frosting is unlike other regular buttercream frosting I normally use. It was more shiny in appearance, and had a marshmallowy taste. To store these you have to keep it covered before a hard shell forms around the frosting.
Pipe large, fat, swirly circles, I tried to make them narrow swirls or they'd end up looking like a pudgy ghost. Narrow as in.. Smaller circles that I'm used to when I'm piping frosting, since I'm usually very generous with it. Fill your piping bag only about 1/2-1 cup at a time for each time you start piping. Too much frosting in your piping bag might be too hard to control as you're decorating.
And Happy Halloween!
