Scrumptious Treats!

Can you believe Valentine's Day is just 7 days away? It just seems like yesterday we celebrated New Year's. Crazy but never the less, it's just around the corner and I wanted to share these easy and yummy treats. I have many different recipes for cake batters, but today, I am going to show you the filling and frosting part today. 

For this first recipe you will need a piping bag, round tip, marshmallow fluff and Nutella. These lovelies are very taste and not too sweet. Oh, did I forget to mention they are not on the skinny side? 


Fill your piping bag or tube with fluff and insert inside your cupcakes.
Next spread Nutella on top of cupcake and a doll up of fluff in the middle. Voila!
Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting. This recipe is light, fluffy and delicious. 
Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
8 ounces + 4 ounces of Softened cream cheese (can use reduce fat or non-fat too)
1 1/4 cup of Powered sugar
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
1 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 1/2 heavy whipped cream
1/4 teaspoon of lemon zests (optional)
In a medium bowl beat on medium speed the cream cheese, sugar, salt, (lemon zests) and vanilla till smooth. Next gradually add heavy cream and beat until is fluffy and light. 
This frosting is great to pipe and is not runny. You can also take a small bowl and add some of the frosting with crushed up cookies (you favorite cookies of course). Then add it in between the cakes layers or frost all over your cake.  

This is a side note - I made pumpkin, banana and flex seeds pancakes and added two sunny side up eggs for my honey! I also drizzled maple syrup. Just yummy!

I can go on and on about fillings and frosting, but I will leave you with these for today! Let me know if you try these out and if you have a recipe you would like to share with me. Love to try new things. LOVE your KIND words, so leave me a comment. 
Hugs, 

Vanessa
