Reader Recipe: Cream Cheese Stuffed Cupcakes

Cupcakes are one of my favorite things, so I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I saw Renees3's recipe. She starts with chocolate cupcakes, stuffs them with a white chocolate filling, ices them with a cream cheese frosting, and tops them off with a drizzling of seedless raspberry sauce. When Renees3 couldn't find an adequate cupcake recipe, she decided to adapt a bunch of different recipes to make her own customized cupcakes. To me, that's one of the true virtues of cooking: You can tailor any recipe to suit your needs, which can result in something even better! To see how her cupcakes came together,

personally I think the white chocolate is a nice contrast to the Chocolate of the cupcakes. It gives it a separate flavor so it's not just like a squishy chocolate cupcake, there's a different flavor in there. I think white chocolate and raspberry complement each other really well. Also, I don't think it would look marbled, it mixes pretty well, I think it would just be a light brown.

Any particular reason why using white chocolate over chocolate? If I used melted semi-sweet chocolate with the cream cheese, would it still taste okay; just have a marbled look to it?
