  11. To prepare white chocolate ganache, make sure that chocolate is chopped into small pieces. I prefer to melt the chocolate for 30s in oven so that it gets mixed with cream easily.

  12. Bring cream to a boil in a small sauce pan. Pour over chocolate and stir with a spoon until chocolate melts completely. Cream and chocolate should get mixed well.

I have tried with 340g powdered normal sugar instead of caster sugar.

A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.

I could make 18 medium cupcakes with this batter.
