Mile High Cupcakes

I've always loved those bakery shop cupcakes with the frosting at least 3 inches high but yowza, that's a lot of frosting! So, I thought I'd share my secret with you for getting gorgeous looking cupcakes without worrying about a huge pile of frosting tipping over (or a huge pile of frosting in your kids' stomachs:)). Check out the video for an easy tutorial!

Mile High Cupcakes
Ingredients:
Your Favorite Cupcakes
Frosting
Ziploc Freezer Baggie (quart or gallon size)
Large Marshmallows
Sprinkles, etc. (optional)

Directions:
Place frosting in Ziploc bag and snip off bag corner to use as your "decorating bag". Adhere marshmallow to center of cupcake with a dab of icing. Starting at the base of the cupcake, make swirls around the marshmallow, following it to the top. Voila! A Mountain of Frosting! Decorate with sprinkles, etc.
Notes: when using baggies as decorating bags, make sure to use freezer bags. The regular storage bags will often break apart when decorating (learned from personal experience! ack!).
