Delicate and moist vanilla cupcakes are topped with a fragrant pistachio cream cheese frosting for the perfect party treat. Pistachio paste adds a nutty and bold flavor to tart cream cheese frosting. This simple recipe is perfect for celebrating a birthday or bringing to a bakesale. White and yellow almond paste flowers make for stunning decoration on these otherwise simple little cakes.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 grams butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 190 grams flour
  • 120 grams cream cheese
  • 50 grams butter (soft)
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pistachio paste (chopped)
  • almond paste (White)
  • yellow food colouring (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl, whisk sugar and eggs together until the mixture whitens. Then add the melted butter and vanilla. Finally add the flour gradually.
  3. Pour the mixture into cupcake baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Remove the cupcakes and let cool thoroughly.
  5. Meanwhile, vigorously whisk the cheese with the butter. Add the icing sugar and pistachio and mix it to obtain a homogeneous mixture. Place it in the refrigerator.
  6. Prepare the almond paste flowers: take a small amount of almond paste, add a drop of yellow dye, and mix well. Form small balls (the same amount as the number of cupcakes you have) and set aside.
  7. With the rest of white almond paste, form several small balls (you'll need 4-5 for each yellow ball). To form a petal, just flatten a white ball, and pinch one of the edges. Stick 5 petals around a yellow ball to form a daisy.
  8. Pour the icing in a pastry bag and decorate each cupcake. Finally, add a daisy. Chill before serving.
