I have been baking today, simply because I needed something sweet and sugary. I ended up with a batch of light chocolate cupcakes with a white meringue frosting on top. It is a really good flavour combination those two.
If you are looking for a 100% white frosting, the white meringue frosting is a really good choice. The white meringue frosting holds up really well too. I had a couple of left overs and after a couple of hours they still looked nice. The only thing is that the frosting will crust over time, but it still taste good.
To dress them up, I used some bright and colorful sprinkles to give the final touch. Simple and classic! The reason why I call them light chocolate cupcakes is because they have a light chocolate (cocoa) flavour and my kids loves them.
I love this close up photo of this confetti cupcake Mmmmm.
