Cake
 2 oz Unsalted Butter
 5 oz Sugar
 ¼ tsp Salt
 ½ tsp Baking Soda
 1 Egg
 3 oz Flour (sifted)
 1 oz Cocoa Powder (sifted)
 5 oz Buttermilk
 1 tsp Vanilla
Marshmallow Coating
 ½ Package Gelatin
 10 oz Water (halved)
 7 oz Corn Syrup
 18 oz Sugar
 ½ tsp Salt
 1 tsp Vanilla
Cream Filling
 6 oz Heavy Whipping Cream
 4 oz Marshmallow Coating
Coconut Coating
 6 oz Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
 1 drop Red Food Coloring

Cake
1

Mix together butter, sugar salt, baking soda, and baking powder until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and mix 1 more minute until combined. Add all flour and cocoa then slowly add buttermilk and vanilla. Mix only until combined- don't over mix. Divide batter between cupcake cups and bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow to cool 2 hours before filling.

Marshmallow Coating
2

In a medium bowl, combine gelatin with half the water. Mix so there are no lumps then set aside. In a medium pot, combine remaining water, corn syrup, sugar over medium heat. Stir to ensure sugar dissolves and cook until mixture reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. As soon as it happens, allow to cool down to 210 degrees. When cooled, combine sugar syrup with gelatin and whip on slow speed until fully dissolved. Add salt and vanilla. Increase speed to high until light, fluffy and tripled in size. Reserve 1/4 cup for cream filling. Transfer most into a pastry bag.

Cream Filling
3

Mix marshmallow coating with all of heavy cream and mix. Beat until stiff. Use a paring knife cut out a hole in the bottom of the cupcakes and fill. Take the pastry bag of marshmallow coating and pipe a generous blob onto each cupcake until it flows down the sides, completely covering it.

Coconut Coating
4

Pulse together in the food processor. Generously coat each cupcake with coconut. Serve immediately.
