My only beef with this recipe is that the crumb is VERY VERY delicate. The first time I made this recipe I was almost glad I had ran out of cream cheese frosting b/c I think the thick heavy frosting would have demolished it. It almost did here but I ended up making the cake super cold (think, near frozen) and let the frosting sit out, but not longer than an hour (after 4 hours at room temp, bad things would have grown in it). The "crumb" coat did exactly that, it crumbed my cake!
For these cupcakes, I actually used the mistake frosting I had made the first time around b/c I knew one of my co-workers really liked it and in all honesty, I did too. Then again, marshmallow fluff always makes me happy. :)
I only filled them just above half way. I wanted to make some minis too for Brenna. But I have a tendency to never fill them enough!
See, not even reaching the tops!

Pretty Wilton box :)
Isn't she gorgeous? :)
Look at that dark red yumminess! It gets darker the more cocoa you add. And there is added flavor. Yum!
