White Cupcakes {Wedding Cupcakes}

white cupcakes

People love weddings for different reasons. For me, the best part of the reception is the wedding cake. While most brides dream about their ring or their wedding dress, I wanted a delicious cake. And my favorite kind of wedding cake is a white wedding cake. It seems like making a good white cake should be easy, but it’s not. I’ve tried so many white cake recipes that just don’t work out, and I always end up going back to a cake mix. This cake starts with a cake mix, but it ends up tasting like a great bakery cake. It is light and tender and moist with a light vanilla flavor. I used Whipped Buttercream Frosting for these cupcakes. It is uh-mazing!

      I haven’t tried baking this recipe in rounds, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

      It is sugar. I sprinkled a decorating sugar on top . I use salted butter for the frosting, but I don’t add salt to the top. =)

      Thank you! I appreciate you stopping by! I don’t have a piping bag, so I used a baggie with the corner snipped off to frost the cupcakes. So, I’m glad to hear that it looks ok =).

    These look great for a wedding. No matter if it’s a box cake or not…it’s the end result. If it tastes good, then it’s good!

    We may have met by chance…but we become friends by choice.
