Why I Love This Recipe

I have always loved the Silver White Cake Recipe from the old Betty Crocker Cookbook, and my new silicone cupcake liners needed a road test, so I whipped up these quick cakes for a post-holiday party. The snowflakes were the crowd pleaser, since the cakes stuck! They need a good dowsing with cooking spray before pouring in batter, unlike the "light" greasing the package called for. You can see my blog for more on my test!

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
4 egg whites
2 oz. White candy melts
Vanilla bean frosting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line muffin tin with paper liners or use greased silicone liners.

Beat all ingredients except egg whites in a large bowl on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly

Beat on high for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally

Add egg whites and beat on high speed for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally

Pour into muffin cups

Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are just golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean

While cakes cool, make snowflakes by melting candy according to package instructions

Pour melted candy into a ziploc freezer bag and snip off a small corner

Draw snowflakes onto wax paper (I place a drawn template underneath)

Allow to harden and store in a cool place until ready to use

When cakes are completely cool, frost and add snowflakes
