    Rita~'s Note:

    My Dad requested t cupcakes for his Birthday and want then to be licorice flavored with some bits of licorice on top. I did use real licorice root steeped in warm milk but for ease I'm posting this recipe using anise oil-extract. If you want to make it that way steep 1/4 ounce of the root in the warmed 1 cup milk, blend in a blender and let steep for 15 minutes don't forget to strain it.
