Simple White Wedding Cake Cupcakes Recipe : Learn Like a Pro

We are getting married today. The day when my father leads me down the aisle and into the new life that lies ahead. Coral-dressed bridesmaids, tuxedo-clad groomsmen, happy friends, excited parents, a rock-star band, a skilled photographer, a videographer, a photo booth, filet, salmon with sesame crust, champagne glasses, and many more. I have three things: an ancient, a borrowed, and a blue item.

Prepare the cupcakes: Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Put aside. In a medium bowl that is safe to use in the microwave, melt butter. Add the sugar and whisk until a grainy mixture forms. Add the yogurt, milk, almond extract, and vanilla extract and whisk until well blended. Till there are no more lumps, gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet components. The batter will have a thick consistency. Avoid over-mixing. Put aside.

Beat the egg whites for about three minutes, or until they are thick and frothy, using a whisk, a handheld mixer, or a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. To see an example of the egg whites, view the photo towards the bottom of my post about yellow cupcakes with milk chocolate frosting. Fold the whipped egg whites into the cupcake batter using a rubber spatula. The batter will be silky, thick, and smooth. Using a toothpick placed in the center, remove cupcake liners after 20 minutes of baking the batter divided among the 12 liners. Let the cupcakes cool fully before applying the icing.

Melt the white chocolate for the frosting while the cupcakes cool: In a bowl that is safe to be microwaved (I generally use a glass liquid measuring cup), add the chopped white chocolate. Microwave for 20 seconds at a time, stirring after 20 seconds, until the chocolate is perfectly smooth. Allow it to cool for 20 minutes at room temperature. (Ensure that the white chocolate has cooled for 20 minutes after melting so that the butter won’t melt from the extreme heat.)

Prepare the frosting: Using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for one minute on medium speed in a medium-sized bowl. Reduce the speed of the mixer and gradually incorporate the powdered sugar. Smoothly stir the cooled white chocolate and stir it into the butter/sugar mixture. To make the mixture creamy and well-combined, turn the mixer to medium and beat for two minutes. Mix in the salt, vanilla extract, and cream. Beat until well blended, about 1 minute. Smell. If necessary, thin with an additional Tablespoon of heavy cream or milk, if preferred. If frosting is overly sweet, add a little more salt.
