Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow Face-Off Puck Cakes {Hockey Themed Cupcakes}

by | Jun 24, 2015 | Cake Decorating, Hockey | 2 comments

While I was decorating the Hockey Jersey Birthday Cake, some of our older children were busy with other birthday preparations… Twinkle Toes baked “Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow Cupcakes” and Ranger carefully created the “Face-Off” inspired decorations to place on top of the cupcakes! (Captain was working on another fun treat which I’ll share next.) It’s was so nice having help!!!

Our original inspiration for our “Face-Off Puck Cakes” came from these Hockey Themed Cupcakes, but Ranger made some modifications. He did a great job and I really loved how they turned out! 
Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow Face-Off Puck Cakes
  • Dark Chocolate Cupcakes
  • Marshmallow Frosting
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Black Candy Melts, melted
  • M&M’s (Dark Brown works if you can’t find Black)
  • Plastic Bag (with corner cut off)

Bake and frost cupcakes. We choose to serve “Hot Chocolate & Marshmallow Cupcakes” simply and quickly made with a Dark Chocolate Cake Mix and Vanilla Marshmallow Fluffy Frost.  
Create the Hockey Sticks by breaking off one end to make the desired length and then placing the pretzel (broken end) in a drop of black candy melt (squeezed from the plastic bag onto wax paper) and then adding some additional melted black candy to create the blade. Let dry. 
Place two pretzel “hockey sticks” (criss-crossed with the flat side of the stick facing up) on top of the cupcake. Add an M&M “puck” in between the two sticks. All done!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
