Whipped Chocolate Almond Frosting

3 years ago

This weekend I discovered a new love for yellow cake. Yep, you heard me right. Up until this weekend I had never tried yellow cake...now that I have, I don't think I can turn back. At the Wilton Sweet Up event, we got to tour the amazing test kitchen where they told us what kind of cake mix they use. So while I was at the store this weekend, I picked up a box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix and made these yummy cupcakes.

These cupcakes are moist and surprisingly light, unlike most cupcakes which are dense and contain too much flour. I'm not kidding when I say that these cupcakes will melt in your mouth. When I tasted the light and airy cupcakes, I knew that I wanted a frosting with a similar profile. This whipped chocolate frosting is the perfect match and the almond extract compliments the chocolate perfectly!
