Reviews forRaspberry Peach Cupcakes
"i wasnt fond of icing but other wise cupcake was very light and tasted good"
"I come back to this recipe time and again when I need a special dessert that travels well (keep cold!) Lasts many days when kept refrigerated. I have used well-drained frozen raspberries and reduced the milk to 3/4 c. successfully."
"Everytime I make these cup cakes, I am asked for the recipe and the next time I'm going to make them!"
"first frosting no good too sweet not good. cupcake does get sticky, its alright on taste recipe just needs work got good parts to it just not right yet. not long self life too"
"Always receive many compliment on these cupcakes. When I make cupscakes for grandkids, I make this recipe for the adults! Only problem, fruit sinks to bottom of cup, but wonderful flavor."
"Although the flavor of these was very good and everyone at my work liked them, I found them to be quite sticky when I brought them in. I cooked them the night before and they were not sticky when I took them out of the oven. This is definitely a serve-right-away cupcake."
