How to Make Orange Cranberry White Chocolate Cupcakes


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 and line muffin tins with cupcake liners.
  • 2In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine egg whites, egg, oil, buttermilk, sour cream and zest at low speed.
  • 3Add in the cake mix and mix on medium speed, then fold in cranberries.
  • 4Use a medium cookie scoop to fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
  • 5Bake for 10 minutes (14- 16 for standard size), until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • 6Allow to cool in the pan for 1 minute, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 7While the cupcakes are cooling make the ganache by melting the white chocolate chips and heavy cream together in a double boiler or in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each time until almost melted, then stir until completely melted.
  • 8Be careful not to heat to long or the chocolate will burn.
  • 9Invert the cooled cupcakes, one at a time and dip into the ganache.
  • 10Place back on the wire rack and allow the ganache to set.
  • 11Meanwhile, in the (cleaned) bowl of your stand mixer,beat cream cheese and butter at med-high speed for 4 minutes.
  • 12Add in the pudding mix, vanilla extract and powdered sugar and mix at medium-low speed until well combined.
  • 13Add up to an additional 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, if frosting is too thin.
  • 14Use a spatula to scoop the frosting into your piping bag with your preferred decorating tip, and pipe away.
  • 15Top with red sugar sprinkles for an extra festive display.
