Day 141 – White Chocolate Cupcakes

19 Dec

Okay, so last Tip Thursday, I talked about white chocolate.  And, ironically, this Tip Thursday, I made White Chocolate Cupcakes (recipe below from A Pumpkin & A Princess), but I’m not talking about white chocolate.  Hmmm…..

Anyway!  Check out the Tip video today and then check out these fluffy white cupcakes….that seem to remind me a lot of the snow outside…I guess these were the right choice for today.

Now, dig in to the white chocolate!

The cupcakes are dense and very cakey. They aren’t terribly moist, but they’re not too dry either.  They taste a lot like a sugar cookie. Slight crunch on the top and everything. Sweet and simple.


The frosting is thick and creamy. Very easy to pipe.  The white chocolate is WAY more obvious in the frosting. It tastes like a cream cheese frosting mixed with white chocolate, which is good, since that’s what it is…

Together these are really nice. A lot like a frosted holiday sugar cookie. The cupcake is sweet but not overstated and the frosting is quite sugary with that white chocolate flavor. They go together quite well.  Note: When they’re frosted, the mini cupcake isn’t strong enough to hold up to the frosting. It still works, but the balance is better in the full-sized.

Note: The directions call for baking powder, but there’s not amount given. I used 1 tsp, which is pretty standard, and that worked perfectly.
