MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2012

OMG! These are awesome! I made them last night and brought them into work today. Everyone loved them and everyone asked for the recipe. My husband said they were the best cupcake yet! The cake was light and fluffy just like angel food cake is, and the frosting was not too overpowering. YUM! Definately will make many more times. Thanks!!
