#8 Ghetto Cupcakes / #9 FlufferNutter

Two posts in one, cos I forgot to post about Ghetto Cupcakes. We have themed lunches on Friday and last week was 'Ghetto Day' - where we eat KD, raw hot dogs, and other stuff that is terrible for you. We all felt gross afterward.

For Ghetto Day, I made Ghetto Cupcakes - Rainbow Flavoured cupcakes from a BOX, with icing from a CAN. They were awful.

FlufferNutter, though, which is this week's cake - amazing! So peanut buttery! A FlufferNutter is a sandwich made of peanut butter and marshmallow fluff. It is very sweet, but I like it. Shiv introduced the idea when I was trying to come up with my 52 flavours.

Peanut Butter Cake Bit
Makes a LOT. (c.40 cakes)

2 c. sugar
3/4 c. margarine
1 1/4 c. peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups soy milk
1 t. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups cake flour
1 t. baking soda
2 t. cream of tartar
1 pinch salt

Mix together sugar and margarine and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla.
Mix together flour, tartar, soda, salt.
Add Flour & milk to butter, alternatingly. End with flour.

Bake 18 minutes or so at 350.

Marshmallow Frosting

1 container Marshmallow fluff
1/4 c. or so of Margarine
2+ c. icing sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 t. soy milk

Whip together all ingredients. Add more/less icing sugar depending on the consistency.

Top with chopped peanuts. Mmmm, peanuts.

Both cupcakes were YAY! yummy.

The Ghetto ones had rainbows! WHEE!

The fluffers were SO sweet I not only went into orbit, but saw music while I did so.

I still like CLEMENTINES.

The FlufferNutter cupcakes were my favorite so far! A+! Two thumbs up!

Although the sandwiches I grew up with were roughly evenly PB vs Fluff, I think that the cupcakes benefited from the higher ratio of peanut butter to fluff.

The peanuts on top added a pleasant crunch, too.
