    A recipe from The Taste of Home Cookbook. I made the recipe for yellow cupcakes which is at the end. I didn't do the ganache.

    Units: US | Metric

    White Chocolate Ganache

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar and food coloring until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.
    2. 2
      Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 F for 23-27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, in a heavy saucepan, melt chips and butter with cream over low heat; stir until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Chill for 30 minutes, stirring once.
    4. 4
      Beat on high for 2-3 minutes or until soft peaks form and frosting is light and fluffy. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert #30 star tip. Fill bag with frosting; frost cupcakes. Sprinkle with coarse sugar and edible glitter. Store in the refrigerator.
    5. 5
      Yellow Cupcakes : Omit pink food coloring from batter. Decorate with coarse sugar (color of your choice).

      My first time making (and eating) velvet cupcakes, so I have no real frame of reference.
      I made these with DD for her 5th birthday- a really easy and child friendly recipe, that she thoroughly enjoyed making.
      She was a little disappointed that the pink of the cupcake wasn't as bright as she expected ( but she is a kid!), but apart from that, she and everybody else was very happy with the results.
      We made the white chocolate ganache for half of them and Boomette's Vanilla Buttercream Frosting#467332 for the remainder...making half quantities of each recipe ( not a huge amount..so if you like a well frosted cupcake double the quantities).
      Thanks Boomie x Made for PRMR.
