Death by chocolate cupcake with white chocolate frosting

The recipe is adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction.

White chocolate frosting holds its shape very well. If you want to make a rose cake with this frosting, double the ingredients. I used Wilton 2D tip to pipe the roses.

I followed this video to make the roses using two colors. I used dark pink and light pink to frost the cupcakes.

The ingredients below makes 12 cupcakes.
