Oh, filled cupcakes! They are precise, complicated, and finicky, and yet, I am drawn to them like a pirate to treasure.
I adapted the recipe from Cupcake 29 at Ming Makes Cupcakes. This blog is a wealth of delicious looking, albeit complicated cupcake recipes. Ming's look way better than mine, but mine are also quite delicious!
One thing I would change in making these in the future is the glaze. Yes, the glaze is good, don't get me wrong, but these cupcakes deserve something more! I'm thinking a white chocolate raspberry buttercream, or a thick and rich ganache. What do you think?
I also apologize for the crappy picture. Natural light is at a premium in my apartment, and I baked these later in the afternoon, so this is the best I could do!
