Our Mini Family: Doctor Who "They're Sweeter on the Inside" Cupcakes

Doctor Who "They're Sweeter on the Inside" Cupcakes

Why hello there, my fellow Whovians! 

 Adam and I are SO stoked for Saturday--we think Peter Capaldi is going to do a stellar job as The Doctor. Although we will both be working during the day, we will be celebrating with some TARDIS inspired cupcakes! I've been scrolling through Pinterest for almost 2 hours now looking at anything and everything Doctor Who, and I am getting so excited! Be sure to share this post with other Whovians--they will love it!

I was inspired by the season 8 trailer below to come up with a treat for my Whovians to enjoy during the premiere on Saturday! If you are going to a Doctor Who viewing party, you have to try these!



Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
2 sticks of room temperature butter (unsalted)
4 large egg whites
2 cups sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of Wilton's royal blue food coloring gel
2 drops of Wilton's violet food coloring gel
2 cups of your favorite vanilla frosting 
(I used room temperature Safeway buttercream)
AND these incredible TARDIS cupcake wrappers and toppers

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Line cupcake tin with cupcake liners of your choosing.
3. Mix your flours together in a bowl and set aside.
4. In a large bowl (or mixer), cream your butter until it's velvety smooth. Gradually add in your sugar,  and continue beating butter and sugar together. 
5. Separate your eggs to be left with just egg whites. Add your egg whites one by one to your large bowl of butter and sugar and continue mixing thoroughly.
6. Pour in half of your milk and vanilla extract into your large bowl, mix, and add in half of your flour mixture. Mix well.
7. Mix in the remaining wet ingredients slowly and continue mixing. When sufficiently mixed (perhaps 3 mins by hand or 1.5 min with hand or standing mixer), pour in remainder of dry ingredients. Continue mixing--don't over mix, though, since that would change the texture. Drop in food coloring and mix once more.
8. Line your cupcake tin/liners with your cupcake mix between 1/2 and 3/4 full.
9. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 25 mins (depending on oven).
10. Use toothpick to check if it's done after 20 mins--if it goes in and comes out clean it's done!

...they're sweeter on the inside!


These cupcake wrappers and toppers are adorable, am I right?!

  8. I am just a tiny bit excited for Saturday too - I am definitely in the "Peter Capaldi is going to be great" camp too. I love the show, have done since I was little and Tom Baker was the Doctor, luckily my kids love it too. Your cakes look amazing, those cake toppers and wrappers are a real find. They are cool, cup cakes are cool!
