Yesterday, I got inspired to make cupcakes again after I read Big Boys Oven post. He made these beautiful yoghurt cranberries cupcakes with white chocolate cream.
From BBO’s recipe, I made some modifications because I don't have confectionery sugar, no yoghurt, no sun dried cranberries, then since I don't self-raising flour so I added baking powder. Hmmm.... it sounds that this is not following BBO's recipe at all, hahaha....
220g unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla powder
3 medium eggs
1 tsp baking powder
100 ml milk
Everyone who loves to bake, definitely know the basic method of making batter which is mixing the butter and sugar first until light and fluffy then when adding the eggs, it supposedly one in a time after each addition. And guess what kind of silly thing I did? I mixed the butter, sugar, vanilla power and the eggs altogether at the same time! Oops!!!
If other people bake cupcakes between 20 – 30 minutes, my cupcakes were almost 1 hour in the oven! But, hey! Surprisingly... my cupcakes were not sinking at all!!! Wooohooo… finally, I made it! So happy :)
As for the topping, again.... I didn't follow BBO's recipe because no white chocolate and icing sugar. Thus, I melted the dark chocolate and put the small flowers which I made it from sugar fondant on the top of my cupcakes.
