Woman's World Cupcake Recipe

I was over at Safeway today picking up some Lean Cuisines (when you eat as many cupcakes as I do, you have to watch it everywhere else!) and I saw this recipe for Raspberry Swirl Cupcakes in the latest issue of Woman's World Magazine.
The recipe uses sour cream, which makes a cupcake extra moist. Sounds like these are worth trying! Here's the recipe:
1 Package (18.25oz.) White Cake Mix (or your own scratch recipe)
3 Egg Whites
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
1 tsp. Lemon Zest
6 Tbs. Seedless Raspberry Jam
1 Cup Butter
1 Cup White Chocolate Chips, Melted & Cooled
2 Cups Confectioner's Sugar
3 Tbs. Milk
1/2 Tsp. Raspberry Extract
2 Drops Liquid Red Food Coloring
1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Line 18 muffin cups with liners. On medium-low speed, beat mix, 1 cup water, whites and sour cream until blended. On medium-high, beat 2 minutes. Stir in zest. Divide among liners. Bake 25 minutes or until pick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Transfer to racks, cool.
2. Pleace jam in sandwich bag; snip corner. Poke hole in center of each cupcake top and pipe in 1 tsp. jam. On medium speed, beat butter until fluffy. Beat in chips, sugar, milk, and extract. Tint 1 1/2 cups frosting with coloring. Fill another sandwich bag with pink frosting; snip corner. Repeat with white frosting. Place bags, side by side, into pastry bag fitted with rosette tip. Pipe on frosting.
