These cupcakes are WONDERFUL! This recipe is done completely from scratch and you sure can taste the difference. These take a little time and TLC during preparation, but I think you'll find the effort is well worth it!

I'm sorry about leaving the eggs out. It calls for 4 egg yolks. I will edit my recipe now.
