Almond White Chocolate Cupcakes

As Helen, http://tartelette.blogspot.com/
is hosting the monthly event Sugar High Fridays, http://www.domesticgoddess.ca/pages.php?page=10002 which created by Jennifer, http://www.domesticgoddess.ca/ . Once I read through the details of Sugar High Fridays #43, http://tartelette.blogspot.com/2008/05/announcing-sugar-high-friday-43-citrus.html I was really interested to join this event.

To tell you the truth, I thought about many desserts for this event, but finally I decided to do these cupcakes the one we really enjoy making & yesssssss....eating!!!

Then I thought about the frosting as normally I make from chocolate and cream cheese but this time I want to get some fresh orange tasting.

For the cupcake I made almond white chocolate cake , one of my favourites which I always like to make it.

Ingredient ( for 6 cupcakes):

45 grams flour
1/4 ts baking powder pinch of salt
75 grams butter, room temperature
45 grams sugar
1 egg
50 grams almond powder
30 grams white chocolated chopped

Preheat the oven at 175° C and prepare the muffin cups.

Whisk butter in high speed until it's creamy and pale yellow. Gradually add the sugar and keep whisking until they are fluffy and sugar dissolves.

Change to low speed and add the egg and beat until blended.

Gradually add flour and almond powder and mix them. Add white chocolated chopped and mix them together.

Drop 2/3 in the muffin cups and bake them for 15 minutes.

For the citrus icing

50 ml. fresh orange juice, strained
1/2 ts lemon juice
180 grams di icing sugar
2 ts powder egg white

Beat together in medium speed for 1 minute and then turn to high speed and keep on beating till it's thick and soft peak for 3 minuts.

For the decoration, I made the butterflies from marzipan just to get the atmosphere of spring.

Very lovely looking cupcake. I personally don't like cupcake as much but yours look great.

And congrat on another Inter's successful season.

They should have kept Mancini as coach (3 successive championship) and got sacked.

New coach is great too.
