FOR THE CUPCAKES 

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, and vanilla until smooth. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and butter on high speed until fully combined. 

Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients a little bit at a time until just combined. 

Mix in the melted white chocolate (it should be cool enough to touch) until just combined. 

Mix in milk until just combined. 

Stir in white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts by hand. 

Grease cupcake liners using cooking spray and fill halfway full with batter. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. 

Remove cupcakes from cupcake tin immediately and set on the counter to cool. 

 

FOR THE BUTTERCREAM

Once white chocolate is safe to touch, add it to the frosting. Continue to beat for another minute.
