Disappointing Vanilla Cupcakes!
on August 17, 2013
I was soooo excited that these ladies put out their recipes, but I am left wondering if they have some "secret ingredients" that they don't reveal because honestly, I was very disappointed with the basic vanilla cupcake recipe. I bought the Plugra, I bought the Madagascar Vanilla Bourbon, I made sure all my ingredients were room temperature, etc etc Basically, I read the book and followed the recipe. My family's response-- blah. My reaction-- blah. I had much higher hopes for delicious cupcake treats, but this was nothing special. I was not "wowed" in any way. Also, many have commented that these recipes say "makes 12" and they make almost twice that amount-- so something is clearly off. I agree with the other 6 reviewers who gave this book 1 star, but many other reviewers seemed to be happy, so judge for yourself.
