  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 28 regular-size muffin cups. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat shortening with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating after each addition and scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and rum extract. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, and 1 1/4 cups milk, about half at a time, beating just until blended. Stir in dried fruit and pecans.
  • 3
    Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each with about 3 tablespoons batter or until about two-thirds full.
  • 4
    Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    In large bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in rum and 3 tablespoons milk. Gradually beat in enough remaining milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Frost cupcakes. Decorate with dried fruit and pecans.
