White Chocolate Easter Nest Cupcakes

I have been spending some time lately planning my content for Mother’s Day and the rest of spring. Be ready to see a lot of rose, lavender or earl grey based cakes and bakes. However, as excited as I am for all those upcoming recipes, let’s get back to the holiday at hands: Easter; and let’s focus on those delicious white chocolate Easter nest cupcakes.

Cupcakes are like brownies and cookies to me: a nemesis. I can never really get them right. I have tried so many times but most of the time I have not been successful: too much dough in the cupcake liners, cupcakes turned muffins, buttercream that melts within minutes, etc…

After some practice however, I think I am getting the hang of it. Only two ice cream scoops of batter per cupcake linen. That way, I get the perfect quantity of dough and my cupcakes do not turn into muffins.

In any case, I am super pleased with how those white chocolate Easter nest cupcakes turned out. The buttermilk in the dough gives a super smooth texture to the cupcake, and the white chocolate in the frosting is giving Easter vibes – in addition to the Cadbury mini eggs of course.
