Ingredients You'll Need

1 box Devil's food cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
1 1/2 cup butter, softened
6 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup heavy cream
pinch of kosher salt
Orange and yellow food colouring
Pretzel sticks, for decoration
48 mini marshmallows
24 toothpicks, for decoration


Preheat oven to 180° and line two cupcake pans with cupcake liners.
Prepare cake batter according to package instructions and divide between cupcake pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cupcakes cool completely.

In a large bowl using a hand mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, beat butter until fluffy. Add powdered sugar and beat until combined, then add vanilla, heavy cream, and salt and beat until combined.

Divide buttercream between two bowls and dye one bowl of buttercream orange and the other yellow.
Alternating between orange and yellow, fill a large piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe swirled buttercream onto each cupcake.

To decorate, arrange pretzel sticks, standing up, around the buttercream to look like sticks in a bonfire. Skewer two mini marshmallows onto each toothpick and stick a toothpick into each cupcake. Serve immediately.
