This is the last recipe from our Apple Dinner. We thought they turned out pretty cute!
This recipe is a sweet White Cake which is light and fluffy with a yummy Butter Cream Frosting.
* 1 1/2 cups Cake Flour, 12 ounces
*2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Baking Powder, 0.75 ounces
*1 1/4 teaspoons Salt, 0.25 ounces
*3/4 cup Shortening, 6 ounces
*2 cups Sugar, 15 ounces
*1 1/8 teaspoon Vanilla Extract, 0.18 ounces
*1/2 teaspoon Almond Extract, 0.09 ounces
Add to creamed mixture:
*3/4 cup Skim Milk, 6 ounces
Mix in the milk and then add the dry ingredients small amounts at a time until all combined and then fold in the Egg Whites.
*8 large Egg Whites, 8 ounces, measure in measuring cup
(Whip the Egg Whites before folding into the combined wet and dry ingredients.)

Bake the Cupcakes at 350*F for 14-20 minutes being careful not to over bake.
*1 cup Butter, 8 ounces
*1/2 cup Shortening, 4 ounces
*1 pound 4 ounces Confectioners’ Sugar, about 1/2 bag plus 1/2 cup
*1-2 Egg Whites, 1.25 ounces, measure in measuring cup, or 1/3 cup Water and 3 teaspoons Meringue Powder, mix
*1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
*1 teaspoon Vanilla
Cream all the above ingredients together. Then blend in mixer on medium speed and then on high speed until light and fluffy.
Optional: For a softer Buttercream Frosting add 2 tablespoons of Water. We wanted a little bit stiffer frosting so we left it out. We also refrigerated the frosting before pipping it onto the cupcake.
