Champagne Cupcake

We always have leftover champagne this time of year, so to take advantage of the situation Fuzz and I made these champagne cupcakes. They’re white cupcakes with a tiny hint of champagne flavor and a vanilla flavored pink frosting. They also have a really nice, soft, fluffy, texture; slightly domed tops and a not-too-sweet flavor.

Good things come to those who wait, and sometimes to those who procrastinate. I finally got around to ordering some McCormick Vanilla Butter & Nut Extract and wish I’d done it sooner. It definitely lived up to my expectations, which had been set pretty high thanks to glowing reviews from people who said it was […]

Martha Stewart's Yellow Buttermilk Cupcakes

The Best Yellow Cupcakes

Best Ever Vanilla Cupcakes

Oh no, not another vanilla cupcake recipe! Yes, indeed. This is for everyone who is frustrated by the fact that it’s so easy to make a good scratch chocolate cupcake, but not so easy to make a soft, tender, vanilla cupcake. This recipe changes the game.
