I created this dreamy cupcake for my "baby" who is graduating from high school. He is a chocoholic just like his proud Mama. I fell in love with the White Chocolate Mousse frozen yogurt from TCBY and knew I had to incorporate it somehow. With the white chocolate macadamia nut buttercream frosting, this cupcake is heavenly good and just perfect for my super special son.
