Blue Denim Cupcakes

I love Red Velvet cupcakes. They taste divine and look amazing; red cakes-genius!
Blue Denim cupcakes are my own little creations, my ode to the Red Velvet if you like. They are essential a
white chocolate cupcake that have had a stone wash and topped with cream cheese frosting.


250g unsalted butter, softened
250g caster sugar
250g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
4 medium eggs
4tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g white chocolate, melted
1 tbsp blue food colouring

Let's get making:

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C or Gas Mark 5.
  2. Beat the butter in a large bowl until it is softened. Add the sugar, flour, salt, eggs, milk and vanilla and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Fold in the melted chocolate and food colouring
  4. Spoon the mixture into the cases.
  5. Place muffin tin in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly golden on top.
  6. Remove the tins from the oven. Leave the cupcakes to cool in the tins for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

Whilst your blue cupcakes are cooling, you can make the cream cheese frosting. For this you will need:
125g cream cheese
250g icing sugar
90g unsalted butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 lemon, juice only

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Store in the fridge until the cupcakes are ready to be frosted.

 And there you have it, the Blue Denim Cupcake...
