Smores Cupcakes - Martha Stewart Cupcake Club

Blogging certainly takes committment. In my case, it also takes a wonderful husband. Tim is my photographer, taste tester and never minds when we have to hold up dinner to take pictures of a dish. Thanks, Tim for all you do!!

Last Saturday, after a long day of shopping and errands, I remembered I needed the graham flour for this recipe. Tim thought we were headed home but instead we were headed to Whole Foods. Omaha only has one Whole Foods and it's always crowded. After two circles around the parking lot, we finally find a spot. First we head to the bulk foods section...no graham flour, then to the flour aisle...no graham flour. The trip isn't a total loss, we walk through the cheese section and taste some wine and cheese. We tasted a robusto cheese. It was so delicious.

Figuring I would use the whole wheat flour I had in the freezer, I went to the freezer to dig it out. Only to discover it was WHOLE WHEAT GRAHAM FLOUR!! Sorry, Tim!

We had too many sweets in the house, so I cut this recipe in half and in half again. It made 6 cupcakes.

I love Smores. They remind me of campfires and childhood. How do you like your marshmallow? As a kid, I always burned mine. Now I can take the time to just toast them until golden. Cake decorating is on my list of things to learn this year. Until then, I don't own a piping bag, so needless to say, my frosting doesn't look at all like the frosting in the book. I did make a couple of these in honor of my childhood smores, a little burned!




I loved these cupcakes. They taste just like a Smore. Once I learn how to pipe frosting, I will be making these again. Thanks to Mary Ann from Meet Me in the Kitchen for choosing a great recipe. You can find the links to all of other Martha Stewart Cupcake Club bakers here.

  1. Those look fantastic! Even without the frosting piped - just looks like melted marshmallows - perfect! Glad you enjoyed them and made them - mine were a slight crash 'n burn, but there's always March! Nicely done!

  2. Adorable photo! What a great husband! You definitely need support to keep up a blog (at least I also do). The Whole Foods in Omaha sounds like the one I shop at in San Rafael; it sometimes takes so long to find a parking space that I'm already annoyed before I even go in and deal with the crowds of people.

  3. They look great! And what a trooper hubby you have.... mine would send me to the store myself. I find it getting a lil difficult to blog as well, that's why a lot of my posts are SO short.

  4. ya know, i have seen a "flattened" marshmallow topping along the way down the blog roll and I think i may actually prefer it! maybe if it was piped, it may be too much. ((and thats very possible!)) Nice lookin cakes!

  5. lucky that you have a whole foods! nothing like that here in bowling green. my stores don't even stock dutch processed cocoa powder! I like the flattened marshmallow look too--which is pretty much what I did, though not exactly on purpose ;)

  8. Isn't it nice to have support for your blog? My husband is the same way - "sorry honey, another 5 minutes until we eat so I can photograph this..." Your cupcakes look awesome and I'm glad yours turned out well! Mine were disappointing - very dense and the flavor was off.

  9. I made these months ago and they were delicious.

    The pink dishes used in my Valentine Brunch are depression glass. And the mini-white dishes were purchased at TJMax.

  11. Your cupcakes look just like a smore should look! The marshmallow is always squished in a smore, so flat icing seems more appropriate. They look great. Very funny about the flour search...LOL...that's something I would totally do as well.
