Happy Administrative Assistant's Day!

Lorrie wanted to do something for the admin assistant in her area at work, which meant I was baking something. Her job was to find a decoration for the top. She was hoping to find some of the Peeps chicks somewhere but what she came home with was even better. She found these marshmallow ice cream cone candies with pink, yellow, and white "ice cream" colors. I think they turned out pretty good.

The cupcake used the same yellow cake recipe I used for the Easter Bunny cupcakes. I've made this enough now that I'm comfortable with the recipe and what I need to do for them to turn out good. The frosting came from a can which I then colored yellow and pink. I had gotten marshmallow fluff too in case we had different candies but didn't use it. I think the white nonpareils just gave it a nice touch.

There were well-received and tasted really good. Lorrie has already mentioned she wants to do these again.
