Just wanted to say the frosting was yummy. I didn't feel like digging my recipe out for cream cheese frosting so I jumped on here and got one at random, sure glad I did!

These cupcakes are super : ) DH had 2 and he's not much of a sweet eater. I didn't even frost them b/c they were excellent w/o the frosting. I did add about a cup of raisins just before putting them in the cupcake papers. I may make them again later this week : )
