For the Cupcakes:
  • 2-1/2 cups (275 g) sifted cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (5 g) salt
  • 1 cup (237 ml) whole milk, at room temperature
  • 2 large egg whites (60 g), at room temperature
  • 1 whole egg, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.75 ml) pure vanilla extract (or 1 teaspoon if not using vanilla sugar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.75 ml) pure almond extract
  • 1-1/2 cups (300 g) vanilla sugar (or regular sugar)
  • 1 stick (115 g, 8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (119 ml) whipping cream or heavy cream, cold
For the Frosting:
  • 3 cups (711 ml) whipping cream or heavy cream, cold
  • 6 tablespoons (95 g) vanilla sugar (or regular sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) pure vanilla extract


  1. Cupcake Preparation:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line two muffin/cupcake pans with liners.
    • In a medium bowl, sift together the cake flour, baking powder, and salt.
    • In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg whites, whole egg, vanilla, and almond extracts.
    • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Alternately add the dry ingredients and milk mixture, starting and ending with the dry ingredients.
    • Whip the cold cream to soft peaks and fold it gently into the batter to maintain airiness.
    • Fill the cupcake liners two-thirds full and bake for about 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with few crumbs.
    • Allow the cupcakes to cool on a wire rack completely before frosting.
  2. Frosting Preparation:
    • Chill the mixing bowl and whisk attachment in advance. Whip the cream until it begins to thicken. Gradually add sugar and vanilla, continuing to whip until stiff peaks form.
    • For a whimsical touch, optionally tint the whipped cream with a drop of turquoise gel coloring.
  3. Assembly:
    • Pipe a generous swirl of the vanilla whipped cream on each cooled cupcake.
    • Garnish with pink sanding sugar for added texture and a pop of color.


  • Ingredient Temperature: Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature to achieve a smooth, homogeneous batter.
  • Whipping Cream: For the cupcakes, whip the cream just to soft peaks to ensure the batter remains light and fluffy.
  • Frosting Application: Use the whipped cream frosting immediately after preparation for the best texture and stability, as it does not stabilize like traditional buttercream.


Whipped Vanilla Dream Cupcakes are an exquisite treat that combines the simplicity of vanilla with the luxuriousness of whipped cream, making them perfect for celebrations or simply indulging in a decadent dessert. These cupcakes are as dreamy to eat as they are to look at, providing a delightful experience that’s sure to impress any dessert lover.
