Let’s Get Baking:
Cupcakes adapted from here
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake tins with 12 cupcake liners.
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a separate bowl and set aside.
Beat butter and sugar in the mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time until completely incorporated. Add vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients alternating with milk.(Tip: I ended with milk because the dry ingredients made the mixture a little too dry)
Add white chocolate chips by mixing them in and then transfer to your cupcake liners. Bake in the oven for about 15-18 minutes.
White Chocolate Buttercream: adapted from here
Melt the chocolate in a double broiler or a microwave. If you choose to melt in the microwave, do so at 15 second intervals stirring in between until melted. Let it sit and cool slightly.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy before adding the sugar. Once chocolate has cooled, slowly add to the mixture until completely incorporated. I added blue colored dye to incorporate her dress into the butter cream.
Start with the mixer on a low speed and slowly pour in the heavy whipping cream. Increase the speed to medium-high and beat for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Glass Slipper Blondie Cupcakes:
Cinderelly, Cinderella! I have watched this movie more times than I could ever count. It was and still is my little sister’s favorite movie, and I’m sure at one point it was watched daily. I was trying to determine my next cupcake, and the first words out of her mouth was Cinderella. So that’s what I did!
I choose a Blondie cupcake because I felt that this was a good Cinderella flavor. Then I choose White Chocolate buttercream for the frosting. Dyeing the buttercream blue was a way to symbolize her dress and I topped it with pearl like sprinkles to represent her glass slippers.
