    cookiedog's Note:

    If your grandmother made cupcakes, they probably tasted like these ;) Saw these made on Paula Deen's show yesterday and they sure were cute! Recipe courtesy Cheryl Day. You may want to cut the frosting recipe in half as it makes a lot.

      I made these for a bake sale and decorated with blue/white jimmies (school's colors). I had a question about whether the butter should be room temp. or chilled. I used chilled and some of the chunks of butter remained in my batter. The cupcakes baked up great, however, and had a delicious taste/texture. I was able to get about 29 cupcakes from the batter. Also, I was short on powdered sugar and meant to use the 5 cups I had (and then go to the store to get more) but the frosting seemed ok as is, so I didn't have to go to the store! Thanks so much, Cookiedog! Roxygirl

      Just fabulous! The texture is perfect. I made these with my 3 year old daughter and was so impressed. I saw Paula's show too and just had to make them the same week! The frosting is very sweet so I wouldn't put tooooo much on... unless you 're a frosting kinda person. LOVE that there's no corn syrup or shortnening in sight!
