White Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes - total time 1 hour

Rich, sweet cupcakes... great for a birthday party.  The white chocolate ganache is a fun surprise that makes these little gems extra special.  Approximately 100 calories for each cake (makes about 36 cakes).

6 tbsp butter
.5 cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 egg whites
.25 cup soy milk
1.75 cup cake flour
2 tbsp baking powder

white chocolate chips
2 tbsp cream

8 oz light cream cheese
.25 cup butter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Whip butter in a mixer, add sugar, and cream together.  Add vanilla, egg whites, and soy milk.  Once combined, slowly add flour a little at a time.  Add baking powder.  Then spoon out into line muffin cups.  Bake for 18 minutes.
2.  Melt about 1 cup of white chocolate in a double boiler.  Once melted, add the cream to make the ganache.  Spread on the tops of slightly cooled cupcakes.
3.  Whip cream cheese and butter together, add vanilla.  Slowly add in powdered sugar to thicken the cream cheese frosting.  Plop some frosting on each cooled cupcake (consistency won't work for pipping).  Refrigerate to 'set' the frosting, then enjoy!
