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.

If you try to make these or have an requests, leave a comment below. I make a different cupcake every week and I hope you enjoy!

101 Dalmatians Cookies and Cream Cupcakes

Standard

101 dal 2

What You’ll Need:

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

12 tbsp (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature (Tip: If the butter is not soft enough, you could put it in the microwave for a bit to soften it)

1 1/2 cups of sugar

3 large eggs

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups milk

1 cup of crushed Oreos (about 12 cookies) (Tip: I doubled this because I wanted more in the cupcakes)

3-4 Hershey’s Cookies and Cream chocolate bars

For the Frosting:

1 cup of butter (2 sticks) softened to room temperature

4 cups of confectioner’s sugar, sifted

1/2 cup of crushed Oreo cookies, about 6 (Tip: If you do not have a food processor, you could crush them in a Ziploc bag by hand or tool)

3-5 tbsp milk (Tip: I used 4 because of the amount of confectioner’s sugar)

Let’s Get Baking

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your cupcake tins with cupcake liners. Instead of putting an Oreo on the bottom, I put a piece of the Hershey’s cookies and cream bar inside them.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt into a separate bowl and set aside until later.

With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until they are fully incorporated and then add the vanilla extract.

Add the flour and milk alternatively ending with flour. (Tip: I chose to do the flour in thirds and the milk in half to make this work) Then stir in the crushed Oreos.

Fill your cupcakes about 3/4 full and bake for about 18-20 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick into the cupcake, and it comes out clean. Let them cool for a little before removing them from the tins and let them finish cooling on a cooling rack.

Frosting:

Place butter into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Add the sugar about a cup at a time until incorporated. Add your Oreos and 4 tbsp of milk, adding more until it is at the desired consistency. Then ice your cupcakes once they are cool, however you would like.

101 Dalmatians Cookies and Cream Cupcakes:

101 Dalmatians came to cupcake form before the characters. My roommate had been looking at the cupcakes and it peaked my

interest. I love cookies and cream anything, so I took the idea and ran with it. I also have a love for dogs(animals in general) and this movie was one I watched over and over as a kid. I couldn’t not do a 101 dalmatians cupcake after all these positives.

I post a cupcake every week. Leave a comment if you decide to make them and tell me how it went. Also if there are any suggestions for a character, I will try and make them.
