    These were delicious, the frosting especially! Quick and yet a special treat.

    I was so happy to find this recipe! I usually bake from scratch, but this is so good, ( I've made it many times). I had lost my copy, and so I was thrilled to find it. Thanks! The only thing I do dirrerently is that I put raspberry preserves in the center of the cupcake, after they are baked.

    Oh my lucky stars! These are so good! The only change was the egg whites. I chose to do 3 eggs instead. Everyone loved them. They were disappointed I didn't make more. :) Made for the September 2008 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
