great flavor, easy to make....but wondering what I did wrong, as my cupcakes did NOT raise well. The frosting is yummy, but a bit "thin", even with 8 cups of powdered sugar.

These are very good; to fix the trouble with the frosting, use 8 cups of powdered sugar, instead of 6 (same recipe for Magnolia's vanilla frosting) and it will firm up. Yummy!

I love this cupcake recipe, I make them all the time & they really taste like the cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery!!! In the cookbook the icing recipe calls for a total of up to 8 cups of confectionary sugar!! That’s a lot of sugar love –but the kids and adults always go crazy over these cupcakes. It’s a keeper

The cupcakes taste amazing! The buttercream tastes great as well, but found that with 6 cups of icing sugar, it was still a bit too soft and I had to refrigerate the cupcakes right away as the icing was slipping off. The iced cupcakes also lost the definition of the icing tip I used. I would add a bit more icing sugar next time, but over all this is a 5-star recipe.

I've made Magnolia's vanilla cupcake recipe several times now and I think they are delicious, though a tad on the very sweet side. The frosting is DEFINITELY too sweet for me, so I don't think I'll be making it anymore.. .I much prefer a more traditional buttercream that is fluffier and less heavy feeling and tooth achingly sweet tasting. But the cake recipe is good and tastes much better than any box mix.
