Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Impress your friends and family by garnishing these delicious cupcakes with white chocolate curls. Simply microwave 1-1/2 oz. (1/4 of 170-g pkg.) Baker's White Chocolate on HIGH 10 to 20 sec. or just until chocolate is warmed to the point where you can gently smudge it with your thumb. Then draw a vegetable peeler down the edge of the chocolate to make the curls. Since the curls are delicate, it's best to use a toothpick to place the curls on tops of the glazed cupcakes.
Keep the glazed cupcakes refrigerated until ready to serve. While these simple, yet delicious, cupcakes are best when served the same day they are prepared, they can be refrigerated up to 24 hours before serving.
