Kristin's Favorite Marshmallow Fluff Frosting

This is, by far, my favorite frosting in the whole wide world.  It's light and creamy, with a delicious marshmallow flavor that is perfect with cupcakes, cakes or whoopie pies. There are many similar versions, but I've found this works the best.   I'll have to get the chocolate version of it up here at some point, which, too, was delicious!   A mint marshmallow fluff frosting option is included below.

This was my speedy piping where I pop it into a ziploc, snip the end, and pipe swirls onto the cupcake. They're imperfect, but absolutely delicious!

Marshmallow Fluff Frosting
1 cup butter
Add by ½ cups the following:
2 – 2 ½ cups powdered sugar  - Note: to be able to pipe frosting more easily, use 2 ½ cups.
1 – 2  tsp. vanilla
optional mint flavor: Add 1 (or 2) drops peppermint essential oil OR crush peppermint candies, to taste
1 - 2 cups (8 - 16 oz) marshmallow fluff (2 cups = fluffiest icing)

Allow frosting to beat 2-3 minutes, scraping occasionally, until nice and smooth and fluffy.  You can color as desired using food coloring.
You can spread with a knife, scoop into a ziploc and snip the corner and pipe, or put in a proper icing bag with tips and use like you would buttercream frosting.

Easy swirled icing.  I used a half recipe for 12 cupcakes in this case, using less frosting overall.
