Courtney was having friends over tonight for their traditional Sunday night “movie night” and I have been dying to bake so I made these cupcakes for them. The recipe comes from Wendy Paul’s “101 Gourmet Cupcakes in 10 Minutes” cookbook which I just love. Here’s how I decorated them – I took some of our favorite buttercream icing and melted it in the microwave for about 20 – 30 seconds and then stirred it until it was smooth and then dipped the cupcakes in the melted icing, next I sprinkled them with Wilton white sanding sugar or Wilton white decorating sugar or Pampered Chef’s Sweet Honey Vanilla Sprinkles and then topped them with 2 white chocolate chips. I think they look really cute and really tasty!
1 box white cake mix
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla (I used 2)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 cup white chocolate chunks (I just used more chips here)
1 Mix together cake mix, white chocolate chips, vanilla, milk, eggs and oil. I mixed all ingredients except the chips with my mixer and then when the batter was smooth, I stirred in the chips by hand. Fill paper liners 3/4 full.
2 Bake at 350 for 15 – 18 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Allow to cool completely on wire rack.
3 Frost with frosting of your choice and garnish with white chocolate chunks or chips.
