Cupcakes for another Boy Baby Shower!
Since these toppers were made with white chocolate dipped Oreo cookie bark I decided to try out a white chocolate frosting. The name is a little deceiving because there is no actual white chocolate in this frosting. However it is white chocolate flavored with the help of the secret ingredient...shhhh this secret ingredient does all the work for me and get people guessing how I did it. It also keeps the frosting nice and light and creamy but thick enough to not melt right off like a whipped cream frosting. So, what is it?

It's white chocolate flavored instant pudding! It helps me end up with a nice creamy texture that isn't too sweet.

White Chocolate Frosting
-1 box (1 oz.) Jello white chocolate instant pudding
-2 C. heavy whipping cream
-1 C. powdered sugar

1) whip together the pudding and whipping cream until nice and thick with an electric mixer (5-7 minutes)
2)add in powdered sugar and whip for another 2-3 minutes making sure the sugar is well incorporated.
3)do a quick taste test (WARNING: after this step you may need to make an extra batch)

Yield: This will frost about a dozen standard sized cupcakes if you are going to pipe it on, 2 dozen if you just want to spread it on.

Note: For the cupcakes above, I doubled the recipe and added some blue food coloring paste to half of the frosting and topped some semi-homemade Devil's Food Cupcakes.
