mini white chocolate cupcakes

I love finding pretty cakestands. Yet another obsession of mine.  My collection is right about 15 (disclaimer - four are just individual cupcake stands.) I have found more...and they are darling. But first, a snack...



mini white chocolate cupcakes (adapted recipe from cupcakes by Shelly Kuldunski)

1 ¼ cups cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¾ cup sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg, room temperature
½ cup 1% milk (recipe recommends whole milk)
3 oz white chocolate chopped (plus extra for snacking)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin pan with cute little paper liners.

In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In the mixer, blend butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, mix well. Add flour mixture in 3 parts, alternating with milk. Mix until combined, scraping down sides as necessary. Add chocolate and mix until combined.

Scoop into paper liners about 2/3 full. I used a small cookie scoop, way easier (thank you Ina!)

Bake for about 15 mins. Cool and enjoy! YUM!

Makes about 30 mini cupcakes (or 12 regular sized)

Yes, it is made of candy.  Found this at Fancy Flours, but sadly, no longer available.
