Ingredients Needed for Ladyfinger Cupcakes With Whipped Cream

How to Make Ladyfinger Cupcakes With Whipped Cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 240⁰F/120⁰C.
  2. Add the egg whites to your stand mixer and whip them until smooth. As you do that, add the powdered sugar, too.
  3. Draw a few lines of food coloring on the inside of a piping bag using a fine brush. Fill the piping bag with the sweet beaten egg whites.
  4. Fill a 6 cupcake form with this cream. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes. Turn off and open the oven, to let the meringue cupcakes cool slowly, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For each ladyfinger, cut off 1/3 of it and discard it. You’ll keep the 2/3 pieces.
  6. Add some Nutella on the cut-off end of the interior side of each ladyfinger. Stick them vertically on the sides of the cupcakes. Use 8 of them for each cupcake.
  7. Fill the empty space between the ladyfingers with whipped cream, then sprinkle some cocoa powder on top.
