I did not use the icing recipe with the
cupcake recipe; I use another icing recipe.
VERY EASY AND TASTY. I made them for my Belgian fiance and his family for the first time and they LOVED THEM!
This is a very basic white cake recipe. The flavor is good, but nothing spectacular -- not dry, but not too moist either. I used a standard buttercream frosting instead of the one in the recipe.
There’s something special about getting your own mini cake at a birthday party. These cupcake recipes provide a variety of flavors, so no matter whose special day it is, they’re going to eat them up.
