Well, I would use real white chocolate, candy melts are not that appealing to me. You would then need oil based coloring for real chocolate.
I don't really understand why there is a difference, and why there has to be separate recipes for cakes and cupcakes. All my recipes for cakes make cupcakes. No problems at all. So, I'm not sure why a cupcake recipe would need to be modified. I know some people feel that there is a difference, but I've never found that to be the case.
