Good Morning Pancake Cupcakes w/ Maple MARSHMALLOW Frosting

I woke up with this idea.
And of course, I wanted to adapt
the marshmallow frosting
for these lovely breakfast delights.

And they hit the spot!

But once the weather warms up
and the roads are drivable,
I've GOT to hit the gym!!!

Pancake Cupcakes
From BrownEyedBaker

2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1½ cups Milk
2 Eggs
2 tablespoons Butter, unsalted, melted and cooled

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a standard muffin pan with liners and then spray the liners with non-stick spray (important step!). (I used a mini-muffin pan and just sprayed the pan; no liners.)
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; set aside. 
In a separate medium bowl whisk together the milk and eggs, then stir in the melted and cooled butter. 
Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk together until just moistened and combined. Like pancakes, lumps are okay! 
Spoon the batter between the muffin cups and bake until puffed and firm to the touch, about 10 minutes. (I baked my mini-muffins for 8 minutes.) Let cool for about 5 minutes and then remove cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
Maple Marshmallow Frosting

1 stick of Butter, room temperature
~1/8 cup Maple Syrup (start with less, add more if you want it sweeter) ~1/8 cup Milk - I guessed because it's hard to measure an 1/8 of a cup
~2 cups Powdered Sugar
~3.5 ounces Marshmallow Creme
Dash of Half & Half

In a large bowl, mix butter, maple syrup, and milk on medium speed till smooth and well blended. Add in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, on low speed till blended. Once blended, raise speed to about medium for a few minutes. Mix in marshmallow creme untill smooth. Add a dash or two of half & half till you reach desired consistency. (Mine turned out a little thinner than other frostings but I really like how it turned out for THESE cupcakes...if you want a thicker frosting, add more powdered sugar)
