Halloween Cupcakes

White Cupcakes
4 egg whites
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. butter or shortening, softened
1 3/4 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla

1. Allow egg whites to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease twenty-four 2 1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups. Set pan(s) aside. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 350*F. In large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add egg whites one at a time, beating well after each addition. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Fill muffin cups halfway.
