White Chocolate Cupcake with White Chocolate Filling {TWC Linky Party #93 - CUPCAKES GALORE}

This is a very heavy and thick cupcake, but if you like heavy and you like thick then this is the cupcake for you! My step-son LOVES white chocolate and for his birthday we flew him to Las Vegas from Texas and we drove from California to Las Vegas to meet him. We had a wonderful 21st Birthday Celebration. Of course I brought some of his favorite treats (Peanut Butter Krispies) and then I tried these new recipe to make and bring with me (I even sampled one in the car before we arrived, I couldn't help myself).

My hubby and I on our 5 hour drive to Vegas, and I just had to sample (and photograph the cupcake), in the car before we arrived. (below) My step-son and I enjoying Las Vegas life on his 21st birthday.

White Chocolate Cupcake with White Chocolate Filling
adapted by me - recipe from Pampered Chef

3/4 cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 egg whites, room temperature
6 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
12 white chocolate dove candy pieces, unwrapped

6 oz white chocolate, chopped
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups powered sugar

Preheat oven to 325. Place paper liners in cupcake pan. Whisk flour and baking powder in a small bowl. Combine milk and vanilla in another small bowl. Beat eggs separately on high speed of an electric mixer until stiff peak form. Then in your large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy; beat in sour cream until smooth. On medium speed, add flour mixture in three additions, alternating with milk mixture, mix until smooth. Whisk in 1/3 of the egg whites and then fold in the remaining egg whites. With a large ice cream scoop divide the batter among the liners.

Bake 17-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and put on cooling rack. Immediately press one white chocolate truffle candy into each cupcake until flush with top of cupcake. Remove cupcakes from pan. Cool 30 minutes or to room temperature.
Meanwhile, for frosting, melt white chocolate in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Let stand until slightly cooled. Combine melted chocolate, cream cheese, butter and vanilla until well blended. Slowly add powdered sugar; beat well.
