These were wonderful! I was a little sceptical of using miracle whip in cupcakes but they turned out great. I personally suggest that extra sugar as these are not very sweet. I added a homemade oragnge-chocolate frosting, and they were almost perfect!

Warm out of the oven, these were terrible! They had little taste, except for the overbearing taste of Miracle Whip. I put them in the fridge and made a chocolate frosting, and cold, they were much better. Would stick with a classic recipe next time.
