    It is correct, ladies! I have made these and they are wonderful, but very rich, and I use this recipe with less butter for layer cakes.

    Yeah, that seems to be a lot. But it's meant for 12 cupcakes... I'm not sure.

    I'm thinking that 6 sticks of butter is not right on this recipe. Is it 1 1/2 sticks, not 1 1/2 lbs?
