So a few days ago, it was announced that Hostess was going out of business. Stock up on your Twinkies as you get ready for the apocalypse. Hostess also made those chocolate cupcakes with the signature loop design.

This Minecraft requires two 8″x8″ square pans, a vanilla cake recipe (or chocolate but I used vanilla), 500 mL heavy cream, 1 package of instant vanilla pudding, 2 batches of marshmallow fondant (one batch tinted light brown, the other white), one batch of buttercream frosting (enough to coat the cake… it’ll be covered in fondant), some red and brown pearl dust and a little bit of vodka for painting. If you have gray petal dust for a little bit of detailing and shading, have at it!
‘Tis the season, my friends! Nope, not Christmas; not yet. It’s pumpkin flavoured stuff season!

I also tend to shave off a couple of minutes if I’m making cupcakes vs. cake as per the recipe. Enjoy!
