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.
