"Great flavor, the molasses really stood out though so maybe next time I would just use a little less molasses. I frosted them with a thin vanilla frosting, turned out great!"

"these were different, the molasses taste came through real strong, would recommend using the whipped topping to cut the spicy taste...also mine came out with the tops of cupcakes indented, not rounded as a normal cupcake"
