    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    For pretty pastel coloured cupcakes, add in a few drop of desired food colouring my Kittencal's Bakery Buttercream Frosting/Icing goes wonderful with these cupcakes --- I use 2 cups icing sugar and 1/2 cup white granulated sugar instead of processing the sugar, it works out fine this way.

      This is just a regular cake. Not moist. Not super flavorful. It was dry and a box mix would have tasted much better. I gave it two chances as cupcakes and neither worked for us.

      I usually don't really care for a lot of cake recipes that I come across but this one is the best one so far. I thought it had a kind of "eggy" taste which is mostly masked when I tried it with frosting. I also might add more vanilla next time. The texture is perfect and moist. I used almond milk just because that's what I had and it still worked great. I also added a little blue food coloring to the mix since I made them for a baby shower (it's a boy) but the batter is so yellow from the eggs that the color ended up being kind of green. Oh well. This recipe is a keeper.

      AMAZING! This will be my new go-to vanilla cupcake recipe. The texture was pretty dense but was still really moist and light. Got 28 regular sized cupcakes. Didn't follow directions exactly, i creamed the butter and shortening, then added the sugar before the eggs. Still turned out wonderful! :)
