MY REVIEW

"llynettew18: Seeing how egg whites tend to dry out cakes/cupcakes, I suggest to decrease the amount of egg whites and see if that helps."

MY REVIEW

"I made these for my niece who has a milk allergy. Turns out, the cupcakes are pretty gross. I recommend looking for a different recipe. The cupcakes are too stiff and the glaze is very tart."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2009

"This would be great for my son, who has a milk allergy, except that he also has an egg allergy. I understand how to substitute for eggs when they are binders with applesauce, but how would you substitute for all the egg whites and whole eggs in this recipe?"
