Right, so today I thought I would go with something different, but it is not a fully unique or experimental idea like some we have done in this section, but white chocolate is so classic!
Personally I love dark chocolate, but it is just not as useful as white chocolate which can be colored! For example on sunday I made slime cupcakes by putting a little green tinted white chocolate ganache in my piping bag along with my normal butter icing and frosted my cupcakes with a large wilton star nozzle. Each cupcake had this trail of green goo on the white icing, they were so fantastic! So today I thought I would pay tribute to white chocolate in cupcakes, with five of the most inspiring white chocolate recipes online!
The Piece of Cake blog starts with the post “Oh, White Chocolate. Poor, misunderstood, totally underestimated White Chocolate. Come here. I feel you.” and we are with them there! White chocolate is misunderstood and can be great in cupcakes. Here they do a great cupcake with coconut milk in it! Would love to try this one! I have a great white chocolate mud cake recipe which I have baked several times and each time I make them I note “less sugar” or “less butter” they are so rich! These look much less savage, in fact they look positively dainty!
Now these sound totally divine, bananas as the best fruit ever (as long as they are mixed into a smoothie or a cupcake!), and they would be perfect with a white chocolate cupcake too! So on observing the sad sorry look that the four bananas lying in her fruit bowl were casting in her general direction every time she walked past for two weeks, the British Larder decided to turn them into something amazing. And given she shares her recipe, you can too!
OMG how good do these look, drool! I love the look of a red berry in a white glittery cupcake! These are created by Sassy Radish and are just so yummy looking. I imagine the cupcake to be moist inside with a crisp biscuity crunch on the outside topped with buttercream and a raspberry. Just one note, I would as she recommends, double the quantities on the cream cheese frosting. After all you can never have too much frosting.
These cupcakes look like a fluffy muffin, which is how they earned the name Fluffins by one reader, but name aside they look pretty darn good and you can always frost them if you need too! If you want a smoother mixture than that shown in this post by the Passionate Cook, then blend your rhubarb with a food processor until really smooth and melt your white chocolate Personally I think they sound so yummy, I am the biggest rhubarb fan in the world!
Okay so I am easily lead towards the ultra rich and so thought today I would finish with the white chocolate mud cupcake with chocolate fudge by SugarLace. These cupcakes are perfect little white mud cakes and then topped with the chocolate fudge would be rich but divine! Perhaps make them in the mini size so that you don’t knock your guests or consumers out with them!
