I followed measurements and instructions exactly. I found this to taste more like a muffin and not a cupcake. Was a bit dry to me. Not sweet. The frosting was quite thin, I added 1/4c MORE 10x sugar and it was still thin and dripping out of the decorating bag. I filled my cups 2/3 full as instructed and I got 36 servings, not 24. I have fresh, non expired ingredients and mine did not rise very much at all. I will not make this recipe again.
