Albino Alligator Cupcakes

Yet another Beyoncé inspired cupcake. I got the ideas for these gorgeous snow white cupcakes from a lyric in one of her songs! You know what though? Wouldn’t these be a gorgeous wedding cupcake?

Ingredients

Cupcakes

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups caster sugar superfine
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups full-cream whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt or sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract vanilla bean paste
  • 4 drops Americolor white food gel. OPTIONAL

Frosting

  • 1 batch fluffy White choc ganache frosting
  • 4 drops Americolor white food gel. OPTIONAL

White Chocolate sauce

  • 2 cups good quality white chocolate
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar white sugar if you want a white choc sauce
  • 1 cup cream
  • 4 drops Americolor white food gel. OPTIONAL, but you probs wanna add it lol


Instructions

White Chocolate Sauce

  • Add all ingredients to a large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 min at a time, mixing each time until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill. Microwave for 30 seconds right before using.

Cupcakes

  • Preheat a fan-forced oven to 130C (266F). Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt. Turn mixer on low speed and allow it to mix for a couple minutes to help everything combine well (alternatively you may do this by sifting the ingredients together). Add the softened butter and let it mix until it resembles a fine sand like texture.
  • Next, add milk, eggs, yogurt, oil and vanilla extract in a large jug and whisk well.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients in a slow and steady stream until no dry ingredients are visible. Scrape down the bowl. It’s at this point that you can add the  and mix for another 20 seconds.
  • Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 of the way (using an ice cream scoop to transfer the batter into the cupcake liners makes this a quick and easy process otherwise you can use two tablespoons).
  • Bake for 30 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow them to cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting.
  • Core the centre of each cupcake and fill with choc sauce.
  • Fit the end of a piping bag with a Wilton 1M tip. Frost in a swirl.

Notes

Cupcakes can be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
