Oh these are so good! I reduced the vanilla to 1/2 tablespoon. For the frosting, I used an extra tablespoon of butter. I think it's kind of cool how the frosting turned out two ways - glossy and matte. I was trying to spread it quickly on the cupcakes but it was getting too hard, so I mixed in a little cream and it turned very shiny. Both versions taste heavenly and these cupcakes are a hit! The cake is flavorful and they domed nicely. I got 22 cupcakes. Great recipe!
