    @aSchoolGAL you should notice at the opening paragraph of the recipe that the words TV Dinner Cupcakes and Corn-on-the-Cob Cupcakes are actually hyperlinks to the recipes, where you can see that all the greens and oranges of peas and carrots are actually candies :) super cute!

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I doubled the recipe and only after I had the product read the reviews!, bad stuff. I will try to save the cupcakes by decorating them with some amazing, tasty frosting :(

    The problem with this recipe is that it was transcribed incorrectly from the cupcake book, should be 1/2 tsp baking soda not 2 tsp,with the adjustment the cupcakes are tasty and not bitter too bad I didn't know this before because I ended up throwing out two batches of cupcakes.

    I hate to be critical but I don't want anyone to waste time and money on this. This recipe was sadly disappointing. It was tasteless, extremely dry, and crumbly in texture. I expected it to be pretty good considering it came from a famous cook book. Yikes. Find something else.

    My daughter's 1st birthday is coming up and I did a test run of this recipe. I did not care for the flavor of the cupcakes because you can really taste the baking soda; not the vanilla. There is another vanilla cupcake recipe on this site that does not include baking soda. I strongly suggest trying that one.
