vanilla cupcakes w/ chocolate frosting

ITS CHRISTMAS EVE!!!! ^________^

after days of deciding what to bake for christmas, i came to a conclusion of
martha stewart's vanilla cupcakes with crabapple's chocolate frosting :] it was my first attempt for the icing .. as i usually don't TRY to do icing! hahahha!! i couldn't get my hands on a bigger nozzle for my piping bag, so i had to manually do the frosting on the cupcakes =| as you can see, they are not PERFECT ok! hahaha!!

they turned out pretty tasty ^_________^ so im happy!! heehee!! i used max-brennr chocolate powder to give it that extra taste!! yay! ;]

so heres the little process:

cupcake recipe:

  • 3 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 large egg whites
chocolate frosting:
  • 8 cups icing sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (or other desired)
  • 200g softened butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
yayyyyy~ all done :] enjoy!!!

HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^____________^
