Did You Save Room for Dessert?

That question haunts me at restaurants...Do I want dessert? Yes.  Did I save room for dessert?  No.

Well tonight I hope you have saved room for dessert!  I had never made cupcakes from scratch before and these weren't perfect but they were still mighty tasty.  Check out this Classic Vanilla Cupcake recipe I found on!  I added a shake of cinnamon (a little overly generous but it worked).  Felt a little odd to make the cupcakes from scratch and then top them with a can of store bought icing since I already know how to make icing but eh, what's a girl to do?  ;)

Have you ever made cupcakes from scratch?  Have any suggestions or recipes to share?  I'd love to hear from you!


  1. I made cupcakes tonight too, but mine were from a box. I will DEFINITELY try that recipe sometime soon. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yumm! Can't wait to have some today!

  3. I have made cupcakes from scratch a couple times but haven't found the perfect recipe! I have a cookbook that calls for self-rising flour in all the cupcake recipes and I don't think that makes the best cupcakes.

    On a related (dessert) note, I am making the ice cream cake recipe you posted a while back this weekend for Zach's family :)
