The frosting for this cupcake was out of this world, but the cupcake was a little dry. It was more like a muffin not a cupcake. I will watch my baking time a little more closely and use only unsalted butter (I used one stick salted and one stick unsalted) if I use this cupcake recipe again. (use unsalted in the frosting as well)
