  4. Let it dry for 15 minutes.

Mom Tips

Use butter at room temperature.

For chocolate version: ice the cupcakes well. Cover them with melted dark chocolate. Decorate to taste or let it dry and then decorate with streaks of melted white chocolate. Two hundred and fifty grams of dark chocolate is enough to make the recipe. For white chocolate, fifty grams.
