Chai + White Chocolate

After yesterday's frosting fiaster, I decided to try out swiss meringue buttercream one more time. I must say that it turned out about 1000 times better, texture-wise, anyway... nice and light and silky :) The Dyann Bakes video for this frosting helped me out tremendously.

I decided to make a chai flavored cupcake (recipe here) with white chocolate frosting. I had a hard time finding the white chocolate SM buttercream recipe, but eventually found a great one (at the bottom of the linked page) from Mr. Weddingcakes.com, Ron Ben-Israel.

My local grocery store didn't have any non-coconut-flavored white chocolate bars, so I decided to get Lindt white chocolate truffles instead to flavor the icing. Turned out pretty well, and I used the leftovers to drizzle on top of the cupcakes... mmm.

I haven't actually tried these yet, but if the smell was any indication, they were great! A.'s coworkers are probably feasting on them as I type this, or will be soon :)
