Recipe Notes

  • To avoid dense cupcakes, don’t over mix your batter. Simply mix it until it’s fully combined and no dry spots remain.
  • Storage: Keep any leftover cupcakes in a covered container in the refrigerator. This applies to any leftover frosting too. They are best eaten within a week.
  • Looking for a different flavor frosting? Be sure to explore the frosting section of the recipe index!
