"I was so very disappointed with this cupcake. Baking it just not my favorite type of cooking and I was excited about an "easy thing" to have to fix. Well, I didn't want an easy thing that would be boring. We didn't even eat them all. I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings here but this is a lot of ingredients to use as well as a lot of time to have the end product be what I came up with."
"We're sorry there was disappointment with this recipe. It was originally published in Light & Tasty magazine (now called Healthy Cooking) for a diabetic feature. Hopefully diabetics find this to be a nice treat, but for others it shouldn't be compared to regular cupcakes with more fat and sugar.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
"Ho hum, Why is this cupcake of the week, I want to know. I did make substitutions, I split the recipe in half and used regular sugar and buttermilk instead of milk. They are not bad and the texture is ok, but this recipe is nothing special. I ratcheted them up by making a ganache frosting."
"NOT Classic Yellow Cake, change the name to Poorly executed yellow cake"
"I would NOT make these again--EVER!! The ending product was just wrong on so many levels! . . . and yes, I used all of the ingredients listed in the recipe. No subs. UGH---such a waste of ingredients!"
