    Cupcakes are darling. I hae one question. Being as the frostinig is made partly from Cool Whip, do the cupcakes have to be served immediately, put in the refrigerator, or can they be left out?

  9. Those are some pretty cupcakes! And easy enough for me to make gluten free! Thanks for the inspiration!

    When you say a jar of Fluff, what size/how many ounces? Thanks!

  13. You are so talented! I always love your presentations! ;D

    These are so cute but the frosting “recipe” doesn’t work at all! When you beat them
    Together they become a gooey runny mess. I even tried adding powdered sugar and all it did was make it way too sweet but still a gooey mess. Now I have to buy more p/s to make a buttercream frosting to decorate my cupcakes. What a waste of time and money. :(
