Ingredients

  • 1 box Devil’s food cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box

  • 48 mini marshmallows

  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 c. heavy cream

  • 1 1/2 c. butter, softened

  • 6 c. powdered sugar

  • pinch of kosher salt

  • Orange and yellow food coloring

  • Pretzel sticks, for decoration

  • 24 toothpicks, for decoration

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line two cupcake pans with cupcake lines.
  • Make cake batter according to package instructions and divide between cupcake pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean, for about 20 minutes. Let cupcakes cool completely.
  • In a large bowl using a hand mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat butter until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and beat until combined. Then add vanilla, heavy cream, and salt, beat until combined.
  • Divide buttercream between two bowls and dye one bowl of buttercream orange and the other yellow.
  • Alternating between orange and yellow, fill a large piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe swirled buttercream onto each cupcake.
  • For decorate: Arrange pretzel sticks, standing up, around the buttercream to look like sticks in a bonfire. Skewer two mini marshmallows onto each toothpick and stick a toothpick into each cupcake.
