White Chocolate Cupcakes

2 dozen baked white cupcakes

White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
6 ounces chopped white chocolate
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
8 ounces full fat cream cheese, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups powdered sugar
powdered sugar for dusting
1. Gently melt the white chocolate over a double boiler, stirring until smooth. Set the chocolate aside to cool until just barely warm.

2. Combine the white chocolate, butter, vanilla and cream cheese in the bowl of your mixer and beat until smooth. (It is important that the butter and cream cheese are at room temperature, as any chill will result in the chocolate hardening and creating a grainy or lumpy frosting.)  Add the powdered sugar and beat on medium speed until smooth.
