Hostess Cupcake Clone & Secret Recipe Club

First things first, I have added a couple new features to my blog... You can now hover over a picture with your mouse and a flag will appear so you can 'Pin It' to Pintrest! This is one of my favorite features on some of my favorite blogs so I am really excited to have it!!

I have also started a Cupcakes with Sprinkles Pintrest Page and a picture of EVERY recipe on my blog is over there. So you can see what delicious things you want to pin more easily!

Lastly, on the left side bar you are able to enjoy by email every time something new is posted. So lots of new things over here! Now onto some sweet stuff!


For the Secret Recipe Club this month I got Camilla from Culinary Adventures. She has done so many exciting things in her life! And now she is sharing all the great food she makes! She has recipes for a bunch of things that I never would've thought to try! Its a great place to go find something new and delicious! 


The recipe I chose was Hostess Cupcakes. I have had these on my 'to make' list for a while so I was really excited she had a recipe on her blog! The cupcake was soft and moist, the filling was sweet and fluffy, and the chocolate frosting was dark and rich. Enjoy and go check out her blog!!

In a medium bowl, beat together all ingredients. When the cupcakes are cool, cut a cone out of the middle of each cupcake. Put filling into a piping bag and pipe cupcakes with marshmallow mixture and replace the tops.

Chocolate Ganache
