Sweet Potato Cupcakes :)

I made these the other night with one of the other girls in my building and they are really good! :)

How do you like the pumpkin shapes on top?

Here's the recipe:

2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick of butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups pureed sweet potatoes (about 3 sweet potatoes)
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix it all together and bake in a 350* oven for 18-20 minutes.

For the frosting, we melted some mini marshmallows and mixed them with some powdered sugar (a messy, but yummy process).  We then cut the marshmallow fondant into pumpkin shapes with a cookie cutter (...if you want them to not stick to the surface you're rolling the fondant on....don't go crazy with the rolling pin. haha)
