Want moist, dense, pound-cake like cupcakes? Try these Perfect Yellow Cupcakes. The recipe is easy and makes two and a half dozen. Perfect for school parties or after-school snacks.
I miss the days when I made cupcakes for school parties. We generally kept those cupcakes pretty simple – chocolate or vanilla. When my kids were old enough, they loved frosting the cupcakes. You can lick your fingers right. And then decorating the top with sprinkles.
These cupcakes are a moist, dense yellow cake with a nice even texture. They’re solid enough that your kids can frost them without crushing them.
I’m going to a Halloween party in just a few hours so I topped mine with orange buttercream and made pumpkin faces with a little chocolate ganache. I need to improve my technique but our jack-o-lanterns were never perfect either.
Chocolate and orange was wonderful on top of these perfect yellow cupcakes. The great thing about yellow cake is the flavor goes with just about anything. So top yours with buttercream, ganache, meringue. whatever you like!
