not really chocolate

I finally did my research on white chocolate using trusty google.. according to wikipedia it is a confectionery derivative of chocolate. To be classified as chocolate it must have cocoa solids in it, which white chocolate doesn't.

Very thankful for that fact,  as last weekend - i finally used my new kitchenaid  mixer for the very first time. 

I made cupcakes with a white chocolate butter icing from a magnolia (of the famous NY cupcake bakery)recipe online. They turned out great! Anyway just glad i did't break my goal of not having chocolate in July! 


  1. Hmmm, a technicality? Very funny indeed! Maybe I will treat myself to a Magnolia cupcake next week!

  2. Yes a technicality - but needed all the help i could get. If you get the chance to get to Magnolia... GO!

  3. I like that technicality! Very clever! I'm going to be using that excuse a lot I fear because white chocolate is my favourite too!

    Those look gorgeous - I LOVE sprinkles! Everything is better with sprinkles!!

  4. Thanks Lisa, sprinkles seem to pop alittle colour into everything, don't they.

  5. Hmmm seems you got away with it...on a technicality ;) Well done - those cupcakes look delicious!
