Gingerbread Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream

Makes 12

145g flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
100g granulated sugar
1 egg
110g black treacle
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
125ml buttermilk

White chocolate buttercream

150g butter
150g icing sugar
100g double cream
200g white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 160°c. Whisk together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda, salt, cloves, and nutmeg and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk sugar, egg, black treacle, butter, oil, and buttermilk. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and whisk until just combined.

2. Divide the batter into cupcake cases and bake until just set and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 14 minutes. Allow to cool.

3. Meanwhile for the white chocolate buttercream, heat the double cream in a saucepan until just boiling, then remove from the heat. Pour the cream over the white chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool.

4. Cream the butter and icing sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture.

5. Pipe the white chocolate buttercream onto the cupcakes.

Glacier Gray

Glacier gray has been chosen as one of Pantone's colours of spring 2015. 
PANTONE describes Glacier Gray as "an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage". 
This makes it the perfect choice for weddings. It can be used as a neutral in its own right or paired with more vibrant colours such as yellow, coral and purple.
