I haven't made this recipe yet. Just got the magazine as a gift. However, what tip is used to decorate this cupcake in the photo?

The texture was amazing for a from scratch recipe. Does not have a strong Amaretto flavor to me. I would probably decrease the buttermilk and increase the Amaretto next time.

These would be pretty darn good if i had been wanting to make a breakfast muffin! the texture, look, and taste are all very muffin-y after finishing the recipe and trying it. My mother agreed. Amaretto muffins...pretty good but I'm disappointed because I had been dying to make amaretto cupcakes for ages!
