Don't worry, they're not yellow. I just had a yellow light above them and didn't correct it.
Quoted from my friend Marianya's website:
"Once upon a time, I really wanted to try my hand at cupcake baking. I came across this new fangled idea when I was surfing Mugglenet.com and came across a recipe for Butterbeer Cupcakes by the Collegiate Baker. When reading up on what the Collegiate Baker did I realized that she actually adapted her recipe from that of another blog from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.
When perusing the recipe I realized that I am not exactly a fan of butterscotch to begin with, but Butterbeer is a popular beverage that is described by JK Rowling as
Ok, so now I’m tempted… I am really really tempted, especially since the homemade frosting became a major draw for me.So I made it myself directly following the recipe. She altered hers a bit, but since mine doesn't deviate, this is where I cut her post off. Hope ya don't mind. (To read how she altered it and how it went for her, go here: Dancing through the Universe )
So this is the true to color end result. Don't worry, no feathers ended up in the recipe.
Following the recipe directly using one standard cake box mix, it made 21 cupcakes for me, with plenty of frosting to cover them all. It might be a tiny too little if you manage 24 cupcakes. The cupcakes are some of the lightest and fluffiest cupcakes that I have ever had. One of mine even turned onto the side in the oven. It was undamaged but quite funny to me. The cupcakes are so good that you can honestly eat them without the frosting. They're good with them, but the average cupcake is nothing without its frosting.
I would highly recommend this recipe.
