I find using a stand mixer or hand mixer much better than mixing by hand.
Really scrummy cupcakes! The only decent white chocolate I could get my hands on were the bars of Lindor, which ment that although my 'chunks' mostly melted away, it made the cakes very moist with an all-round chocolatey flavour. I wasn't sure how much lemon zest to use in the icing so I used about half a lemons worth. It was very lemoney but was perfect for me. My only problem was that while icing the cakes I only managed about half and then ran out of icing! (I wasn't going mad with it, just trying to cover the tops). Will definitely make these again! - 23 Oct 2013
