White Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes

I like making cupcakes. I like the different flavour combinations, I like the decorating but most of all I like the buttercream. Billowingly soft and sweet deliciousness. Yum yum yum. These cupcakes are a basic vanilla cupcake with the addition of white chocolate chips in them for an extra level of flavour and texture.

For 12-18 cupcakes you need:
Cakes
6oz vitalite
6oz vanilla sugar
6oz self raising flour
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g white chocolate chips

Icing
200g icing sugar
100g softened butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp milk

To Decorate
White chocolate buttons
Silver edible spray
White edible glitter

Begin by making the cakes. Cream the vitalite and vanilla sugar together in a free standing mixer for 5-10 mins till light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, with a spoonful of the flour with each to stop if from curdling. Add the rest of the flour along with the milk and vanilla. Mix well. Finally lightly combine the white chocolate chips in to the mixture.

Spoon in to lined muffin/cupcake trays and bake at 170 degrees for 15-20 mins till lightly browned and risen and cooked through. Leave to cool.

Make the buttercream by combining everything together and beating well for at least 10 mins. Pipe on to the cooled cakes and decorate as you wish. Lovely with coffee in the morning or a cup of tea in the afternoon.
