Nice cupcakes. Liked the vanilla and almond flavoring together. Thanks for posting.

This is a great "dress up the cake mix" recipe. I chose it because it was quicker than starting from scratch and I needed that. However, the taste and texture are quite good and I would willingly use this recipe again. For easter I frosted it with a green tinted butter cream frosting with coconut added and jelly beans to decorate. They were fun and tasty.

I omitted the almond extract, but followed otherwise -- moist & yum!
