I don't share my recipes with anyone who knows me personally. I posted the picture of these on Facebook after I finished making them and I got a bigger response on these than any other sweet treat I have ever made and posted. Let me know what you think of them.
**Addition** I sell my cupcakes and wouldn't do great business if I gave away all of the recipes that I invented. Granted, I don't use a boxed cake mix when I make mine for a paying customer, but it's easier for the home baker. Any of my non dessert recipes I am happy to give away and do so frequently.

Two of my favorite things: margaritas and cupcakes! These sweet cakes are perfectly light and refreshing. An ideal dessert for a hot summer evening. The Test Kitchen
