Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cups into muffin pan cups; set aside.

  3. Beat 3/4 cup butter in bowl at medium speed until creamy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Add marshmallow crème; beat at high speed until creamy. Frost cooled cupcakes.
  4. Create clown faces on cupcakes just before serving, using decorations as desired.

Recipe Tips

- For a fun party idea, bake and frost cupcakes as directed. Place decoration ingredients in separate bowls and let each child create his own clown face.

- Cotton candy becomes hard and shrivels if you put it on too far in advance. It is best to add cotton candy just before serving.

- If frosting is too thin, beat in additional powdered sugar.
