Chocolate Cupcakes
These had good flavor but I had a hard time finding the right cook time. Each batch seemed to take about 10 minutes longer than the time stated in the recipe, some are moist and some are dry. This is probably my fault, because reading through the recipe I really can't find anything wrong with it. I'll make it again and hope my first experience will help me with my second. Thanks for a nice simple recipe.

Creamy Frosting
I too, was out of confectioners sugar and needed to find something that didn't call for it. I found this recipe and was nervous to try it because I have never made frosting before but I was pleasantly surprised. I had an issue because I was out of vanilla and couldn't find any other flavors around to add. I finally got really creative and while mixing the sugar & Butter, Added one small tube of yellow writing icing. Yellow because the mix already had a slight yellow tint so it would blend, and also because I knew it would add that sweet vanilla tang we needed. I was desperate and it worked actually wonderfully. I also ended up having a slightly more whipped consistency before I was going to add to the cupcakes I made, so I just chilled the frosting in the fridge a few minutes before using my cake decorator tips to put over the cupcakes. It helped a lot and I ended up with beautiful almost professional looking cupcakes when I was done. very pleased! I also mixed blue & red coloring for a pretty purple frosting color. Thanks for a great recipe, I think it has saved a lot of us in a pinch!

Jam Muffins
This has become a Favorite in our house for Breakfast. We make these at least 1-2 times per month. The only change we make is I use whole wheat flour. The flavor is great. I usually use twinberry jam, which is Raspberry & Blueberry. Wonderful!
