For the Cupcakes:

  • 2 ½ cups cake flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 5 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup sprinkles

For the Frosting:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1-2 Tablespoons milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cupcake tin with paper liners. Set aside.
  2. For the cake, combine cake flour, baking powder, and kosher salt in bowl. Set aside.
  3. In mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar for 2 minutes on medium, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract.
