- Mini muffin pans and paper baking cups vary in size. Yield of mini cupcakes will depend on what size you use.

These were really good, but the frosting is very sweet, and so i would barely put any next time. Making 1/4 the amount of frosting listed is sufficient. Also, I made these in a regular-size muffin pan and it made 12.

Check the recipe note near the bottom of the recipe. Information about baking these cupcakes in a regular-size, instead of mini-size, is given. Hope you enjoy!

Has anyone made regular sized cupcakes using this recipe, rather than the mini versions? I really want to make these for a charity event in 3 days time, but need to make 24 cinnamon fairy cakes/cupcakes - will the measurements given in this recipe be enough? Hope someone sees this soon and can help me out! x

These were sooooooo good! I'm a cinnamon fan in general, but wasn't sure how I'd like cinnamon cupcakes. Let me just say, these were outstanding - and so easy! Love this recipe and the cupcakes were moist and delicious.

Deeee-licious!

The cupcake is great but the frosting is way too sweet. I am going to try a cream cheese frosting on my next batch and may double the amount of spread in the cupcake for more flavor. Smells wonderful when baking for sure. It can be good plain too.

I have made this recipe twice. The family and friends can't get enough. They are absolutely delicious. Facts I feel I must share. Using a 1 tablespoon measurement and 1.25 mini baking cup, this recipe made 48 not 36. Bonus! The frosting recipe is more than enough to frost all cupcakes. Also, the first time you make them, check on your cupcakes after 10 minutes. Mine were done. Ovens vary, and baking time varies.
