MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 12, 2014

The cupcakes themselves were quite good-many layers of flavor; however, I will never make the frosting again. If you do make it, you need to really let it cool forever, not just until chilled. Plus the frosting itself was not very manageable. I will make the cupcakes again, but I will use one of my favorite frostings instead of this one.
