White Cupcakes {Wedding 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.

    i assumed that was sugar sprinkled on top and someone said salt was a great idea – is it salt?!

      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.
