  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. In another bowl, cream butter and 3/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  2. Beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Fold a fourth of the egg whites into batter; fold in remaining whites.
  3. With a spoon, gently fill foil- or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. For icing, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar and lemon juice. Frost cupcakes. Top with berries. Yield: 22 cupcakes.

"I also added a little extra vanilla & Milk as it seemed too dense....did take some time but ended up very tasty. Good for scratch cupcakes w some tweaking."

"This is a great recipe for white cupcakes, I gave it 4 stars simply because although I do like this recipe far over others that I have tried, I really felt that it needed a pinch more vanilla and some extra milk and butter or else they really came out a little too dense without it."

"These were yummy cupcakes. The recipe took a bit more time to prepare but the cupcake was very light and fluffy. The end result was really pretty too. I ended up making these cupcakes for a school cupcake contest and they turned out really good. All the students in the class went crazy over them. We ended up with one leftover cupcake and lots of compliments! They were very yummy! The best made from scratch white cupcake I've ever had!"
