Pistachio Cupcakes

These cupcakes were delicious! I honestly could not stop eating them. They have a few extra steps, but overall pretty easy to make. And they are worth it in the end! Since this past weekend was the last weekend in March, I decided to make them to end the month on a delicious note! :)

For cupcakes:
1 box of white cake mix & all ingredients that it calls for
1 box of pistachio pudding mix
1 batch of Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (I used pre-made, but you can make your own)

For white candy/chocolate shavings:
7 ounces weight white chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vegetable shortening or vegetable oil


For cupcakes:
Combine cake mix and it's ingredients as packaging instructs.
Add in pudding mix and combine well.
For cupcakes, fill cupcake liners about halfway full with batter.
Bake as directed on cake mix packaging.
Cool and decorate as you like.

For white candy/chocolate shavings:
Melt chips according to package instructions.
Stir in vegetable shortening/oil until combined well.
Using a spatula, spread melted candy/chocolate thinly on a baking sheet.
Let harden for a few minutes.
Using a spoon, scrape across hardened candy/chocolate to create curls and shavings.

If you want to make your own frosting, here is an excellent Vanilla Buttercream Frosting recipe that was recommended by

Gluten free: Use a gluten free vanilla cake mix... I used Arrowhead Mills brand and loved it.
