Nothing fancy. This is just a very basic and simple cupcake to make. You are able to add in different flavorings, chocolates, fruits and nuts, etc, for variation. Don't expect the taste and texture to be fantastic, it is really very normal. It is not too sweet, just nice to go along with frosting. I did this so that I can "play" with the fondant decorations.
*Tips: In order to get even height for the cupcakes and you are not good in your estimation, you can weight the batter first. =)
I made this specially for Shan.
