I made this recipe for my friends and family on Valentine's Day, and I have to say...WoW. It was incredibly easy to make (I am not much for box cakes/frosting) and tasted delicious... not like the bozed stuff normally does. The only alteration I made though was to add red food coloring to the frosting that I injected into the cupcake and sprinkled pink sugar on the crowning. It added a nice coloring and cuteness to it :) . Also, I used jumbo cupcake paper holders in a regular-sized tin and added a normal-slightly more amount of batter and baked for the regular time period. The cupcakes came out larger (taller) than ordinairy but didn't come all the way to the top of the paper... allowing room for the frosting which broke even with the rim. I was surprised at how nicely this made packing/storing them because the frosting didn't get all mashed or mixed together... retaining the cupcake cuteness. Definately try it and the recipe! especially if you are new to baking...or just want a simple yet delicious treat.
