Aviator's First Birthday

Mom & Dad of a super sweet little girl - Avalynn Rose

1 3/4  cups cake flour
2  tsp  baking powder
2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 tsp  Double-Strength Vanilla
4  egg whites, room temperature
6  tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup  sour cream
Frosting & Garnish
6  oz  white chocolate for baking, chopped
1  pkg cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), softened
1/2 tsp Double-Strength Vanilla
2  cups powdered sugar
For my decor:
Green food coloring
green sugar sprinkles
chocolate giraffe lollipops I made from a mold using yellow colored chocolate and light cocoa chocolate melts

Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Place paper liners in wells of Muffin Pan. Whisk flour and baking powder in small bowl. Combine milk and vanilla in measuring cup. In  mixing bowl, beat egg whites on high speed of electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
In  a large mixing bowl beat butter and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until fluffy; beat in sour cream until smooth. On medium speed, add flour mixture in three additions, alternating with milk mixture in two additions, mixing until smooth. Whisk in one-third of the egg whites with whisk. Fold in remaining egg whites using whisk. Using large ice cream scoop, divide batter evenly among liners.
Bake 17-20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers comes out clean. Remove pan from oven to cooling rack. Cool 30 minutes or to room temperature.
For frosting,
Melt chocolate according to directions.  Let stand 3 minutes or until slightly cooled. In a mixing bowl, combine melted chocolate, cream cheese, butter and vanilla  beat on medium speed until well blended. Slowly add powdered sugar & food coloring; beat well.

Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes.  Sprinkle with green sugar, insert a lollipop.

Yield: 12 servings
