I have never made cupcakes before, never having had the occasion nor inclination to do so. Still, if a friend asks for help in making a special batch of cupcakes, I'm not one to refuse. Courtesy of a recipe from Food TV California recommended by Cheryl the Baker, my friend and I spent an afternoon in the kitchen with a mind to producing some.
The result? Not too shabby, actually. I might even make these again, though for different reasons.
