Vanilla Poké Ball Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

Hey guys!

The Internet has been down on campus and it’s really frustrating.  It’s finally back though so I’m a happy camper now.

Okay, so as I was sitting in my Digital Media class, my professor was talking about blogs and then he started talking about podcasts.  After that my mind started racing with ideas.  I was like “Hey, I’m gonna make a podcast for my blog!”  So my plan now is to get a good microphone and start a What Katie’s Baking podcast.  What do you guys think?

I could talk about these awesome Poké Ball cupcakes I made.  We had a community builder, which is an event (a movie this time)  for our hall that everyone goes to, so my RA asked me to make cupcakes since I’m “Baking Katie.”  That’s really my nickname now, isn’t that silly?  Anyway, our hall theme is Pokémon so my job was to make Poké Ball cupcakes and I was so proud of how cute they were!  And they tasted even better.  🙂  I made 41 and they were all gone by the time the movie was over. I’m usually kind of wary about making plain vanilla cupcakes because they’re so delicate and hard to mess up, but these turned out so well.  I  definitely recommend this recipe.

*Note that my step-by-step pictures will not have the same amount of ingredients as the following recipe because I had to triple it.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ cup milk
  • Frosting: the BEST white chocolate frosting

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.
  4. Frost with white chocolate frosting.
