I'm planning on making some White chocolate cupcakes and want to put a raspberry frosting on to counter act the sweetness a little.
Any ideas?

You can add some raspberry preserve to your regular buttercream.

I would raspberry puree into swiss meringue buttercream, which tends to be a little less sweet anyway. Your cupcakes sound yummy!

That's what I do icon_smile.gif I tried using a raspberry extract but found it too artificial tasting. I use a good quality raspberry preserves, seedless cause I hate getting the seeds stuck in my teeth!

I replace the liquid in my regular buttercream with pureed, strained raspberries (fresh or frozen). Sometimes the color needs a boost with a TINY amount of pink food color gel.

Raspberry is my personal favorite, and seems to be with customers. I use gourmet jam, only Olive Nation extract, and the best.... Chambord.
