Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

I saw a recipe for s'mores cupcakes in Martha Stewart's cupcakes cookbook a while ago but wasn't impressed with the ingredients (graham flour, really?) so I have been on a quest to find a recipe that sounded good enough to bother with all the steps.  I think I found one (on bakerella.com, in case anyone is interested) BUT I want to do the toasted marshmallow frosting like the one in Martha's recipe, because it just looks SO pretty!

 

My question is - does anyone know how long these cupcakes can sit around before being eaten?  I am planning to bake them tomorrow for my monthly cupcake delivery (it was a charity thing, I donated a dozen cupcakes each month to the highest bidder at a library benefit) but I'm going to do a double-batch because I have houseguests coming on Saturday and thought this would be a nice welcoming treat.  The marshmallow frosting is basically 7-minute boiled frosting as far as I can tell, which I hardly ever use because I don't find it very decorating-friendly thanks to its ooey-gooeyness.  Can this frosting sit atop the cupcakes (and be "toasted" with a kitchen torch) for a few days or would we have to eat the cupcakes right away?

Yes! Like I mentioned in my original post, that is the batter recipe that I used, but I skipped the ganache and used Martha's frosting. I think the recipe you posted might be better, though.
