easy peazy I used wilton honeybees or the bees but the cake itself was great.
This recipe is flawed. I made these cupcakes twice and both times they failed. The centers fell, the edges spread out and browned, and the cakes stuck to the cupcake liners. The cake itself tastes DELICIOUS, but your test kitchen needs to figure out the issue with these.
Hi Stacy, we're sorry to hear this didn't turn out for you. We brought it back into the test kitchen and made sure our amounts were right. We hope you give it another try!
Honey adds another layer of flavor to cookies and makes breads and rolls turn out tender.
