    Absolutely terrible! What a waist of time and a half a dozen eggs and 2 sticks of butter. These cupcakes are awful, be smart and follow the reviews so you don't make the same mistake i did in wasting an hour of my life on baking cupcakes that will go straight into the trash! Yuck!

    I wish that I had read the reviews prior to making these. They turned out to be the absolute cupcakes I have ever made. Even though the consistency was horrible, I thought maybe the frosting would help mask the bland flavor of them. I was wrong. They are just bad all around, and I want the 45 minutes I wasted making them back.

    Well I would imagine that anything that Martha would compile in terms of recipe's would be amazing. not so. The vanilla cupcake was more of a cornbread consistency tasty but too dense for a cupcake. Help I need a cupcake recipe that I could use with a handheld mixer.

    I was looking for a simple cupcake recipe to use up some leftover strawberry buttercream frosting. I had everything on hand so I thought I would give this recipe a try, I followed the directions exactly. They turned out just awful! These came out the consistency of cornbread and tasted even blander. Even my husband, who absolutely loves everything I make, said that they were 'not my best effort'. Avoid this recipe to save yourself a lot of frustration, it is not worth your time.
