Hi Matthew - the manufacturer is Typhoon.  http://www.typhoonplus.com
If you get one, don’t forget to pick up some butane to fill it.  I purchased a butane lighter refill thingy for a couple of bucks.

Hi Jeanette.  I was able to leave a “test” post.  I’m not sure I understand where you’re having trouble, but here’s what I did.  Under the blog post you click on where it says 0 comments, or 5 comments… whatever the number is.  Then scroll down to the comment box.  When you’re done commenting, you have to select a profile (like you’re google name if you have one, or anonymous, etc.).  Then click on Post Comment, then type in the code word, then click on finish. 

Let me know if that works.

I LOVE SMORES they are my favorite thing in the whole world! haha.
I totally have to make them (i need a torch though)

I got that torch as a Christmas gift, but I think the hardware store variety is even cheaper and works just as well.  Or you could always brown your meringue the old fashioned way - under the broiler.  Watch it carefully… it happens very fast!

the torch looks much more fun than the broiler - hahah!!!!
so how did they taste?? did your family just melt over them?

The cupcake part tastes very good - really moist too.  As a matter of fact, kid #3 requested that I make a batch for her friends today, only skip the graham crackers and marshmallow frosting, in favor of vanilla Mousseline.  They were fantastic.

The marshmallow frosting is very sweet, like the name suggests.  I had one leftover that sat out on the counter all night… the marshmallow remained shiny, but it was dry to the touch on the surface, while the inside of the frosting remained soft - I liked even better than the super soft fresh marshmallow frosting.  It didn’t “crust”, but it did turn into kind of firm, but chewy like thing… hard to describe.

I despise them, but yes… kind of like that.  Or maybe like one of the circus peanuts… don’t like those either (bad memories of eating so many that I made myself sick as a child).  Don’t remind me! smile

I have a total of 4 kids.  Kid #4 needed the cupcakes yesterday; kid #3 needed them today (she didn’t really need them, but she requested them after seeing #4 with them yesterday - Rose’s Mousseline was once again a huge hit!)

They look delicious, Patrincia.  Thanks for sharing the photos and recipe.

I haven’t had a chance to tell you how much I enjoy your blog.  I do! And I really like the fact you include savory recipes and tips along with the sweet stuff.  Sometimes I look around my kitchen, which is chock-a-block full of bread and desserts, and realize I’m lacking balance…like real food! LOL

Very nice and much appreciated! smile

Thank you so much Sarah - you are so sweet! 

Funny, as much as I love baking, I don’t do it very often… I only bake when we have company, or functions to attend.  I’d been thinking about a baking blog for quite some time, but I knew I didn’t bake often enough to support many postings, so I thought why not do sweet and savory?  Anyway, that’s how it came to be.  I’m so glad you like it!

I made a batch of mousseline this afternoon (my vanilla version), so that will be my next blog post.  Stay tuned.

Patrincia! Those are adorable. I am not a fan of creme brulee, so FOR SHAME…I have not used my torch yet.
Now I have wonderful inspiration.

Well I don’t have a mini-torch…but I have a big one! *HAHAHA*

Ace Hardware is so useful for a baker.

I use it for browning meringues on pies, cakes, and tarts. If you’ve never had this concoction called Pancake Oscar, and the next time you have brunch guests over, you should try it! It’s simply large pancakes stacked and filled with your favorite jam (as tall as you want to make it), and then iced and decorated with either Swiss or Italian Meringue (personal preference), and the meringue is browned all over. It’s makes for a stunning brunch dish, especially for a buffet.
