Whether you're looking for a cute Christmas cupcake or a sophisticated cupcake, these decadent treats will fit any season.
What makes these cupcakes truly decadent is the white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream. Don't worry, it's not as complicated as it sounds. This buttercream is so silky and not as sweet as the more traditional buttercreams. You get a delicate taste of white chocolate that pairs beautifully with the coconut cupcakes.
For the cupcakes
2 oz. unsalted butter, softened
3 oz. caster sugar
5 oz. self-raising flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 pt. coconut milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
For the white chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream
2 eggs whites
5 oz. white granulated sugar
4 oz. unsalted butter, softened and cut into small chunks
2 oz. white chocolate, melted and left to cool at room temperature
For the toppings
1 tbsp. desiccated coconut
