Banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate

As I told you guys I wanted to bake some pastel cupcakes and cookies for christmas, and here comes a recipe. They taste delicious, but after having survived three trainrides and an hour in a hot bus they don't really look that yummy anymore. Here's what you will need:

The cupcakes

150 grams of soft butter
150 grams of sugar
1 egg
1 dl. buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon of natron
a pinch of salt
a pinch of baking powder
130 grams of flour
3 small or 2 large mashed bananas
Paper muffin cups
Metal muffin cups

Preheat the oven to 160C. Whip together the soft butter and the sugar until it's white and fluffy. Whip the egg in, then add vanilla, the mashed bananas, the buttermilk and whip it again. Put all the dry ingredients together in a seperate bowl, mix it and then add the dry ingredients to the wet before whipping everything together one last time. Now put your paper muffin cups in the metal ones and fill the muffin cups 3/4 with the dough. Bake the muffins for around 30 minutes and let them cool off before decorating.

The Frosting

150 grams of soft butter
150 grams of philadelphia cream cheese
320 grams of icing sugar
1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
Food color
1 bar of white chocolate

Mix together the soft butter, the cream cheese, the icing sugar, lemon juice and vanilla and play around with the food colors you like. I divided the frosting into two bowls. For the pink frosting I used a few drops of red food color and kept adding more to achieve the perfect princess pink. For the purple I started with blue (which turned the mix mint green) then pink and then blue again and kept adding more and more until I was satisfied. I applied it with a piping bag and blended it a bit more with a spatula. Lastly I chopped one bar of rich, white chocolate and sprinkled it on top. Enjoy, and let me know if you do this guys!

My family all loved these cupcakes and have all asked for recipes, so I definitely think they were a success. I really wanted to take nice photos, but my new camera is still on it's way to me, either arriving tomorrow or on the 27th :( It's so hard to stay patient when you're absolutely the opposit, I even called the mail office and got them to send it to another mail office closer to my family haha. Hope you can live with iphone pictures a little longer and also I hope everyone is having a wonderful christmas time! Can you guys believe it's the 24th in two days, ohmygod?
