I prepared these as directed and frosted them with a deep, rich chocolate frosting I thought was a great match, "One Bowl Buttercream Frosting," also from this site. There's not much more I can add to nearly 100 fantastic reviews for these cupcakes about preparation or taste. What I *would" like to add, however, is that what this recipe is all about, what lovestohost has singlehandedly accomplished with her successful experiments, (I refer also to her other infamous cupcake and cake recipes) is to make baking fun and to create whimsical treats. More than the finished product it's about the experience and the sheer joy you get from making these and her other recipes. Offhand, I can think of no other recipe with that distinction that is also so quick, easy, and that works for every baker, novice or skilled. These ARE a treat - for those baking them, for those who make these as a baking project with children, as well as for everybody eating them. Great recipe(s) lovestohost. It was a fun baking experience with a delightful result and I admire your creativity!
