Hi, has anyone ever tried Wilton's vanilla cupcake recipe? I'm searching desperately to do a vanilla (cupcake) recipe by tomorrow for a celebration.. I have pored through the reviews of Billy Reece's, Amy Sedaris & Magnolia's.. all with mixed reviews. Billy's was dry (besides the debate over 1tbsp or 2 tbsp baking powder), Amy's too was dry..

What about Stephanie's (Joy Of Baking) & William Sonoma's? Anyone tried them before or know of a good vanilla cupcake recipe.

Thank you!

Thanks Jan.. for your help and it's good to hear from you again.

I'm rather bombed out with all the reading.. I've got a busy busy day tomorrow.. got to make cupcakes (for my nieces), a cheesecake (the family) and some scones (my dad) all in one day before I leave on a 2 hour trip early Saturday morning.

Still hoping for more vanilla cupcake recipes.. failing which, I'll try either Stephanies or Williams S.

Hi Montserrat, nice seeing you, too. icon_biggrin.gif

Just reading all you have to do before your trip made me tired. icon_lol.gif

Sorry I couldn't personally recommend a cupcake recipe, I've only ever just used regular cake batter for cupcakes, too. tapedshut.gif

Showing my age, I guess. icon_rolleyes.gif

Wishing you happy baking and a great trip. birthday.gif

I've tried Magnolia bakery's recipe. I thought it was delicious. it was moist and delicate...for the first hour out of the oven. it seemed to get hard (not firm but hard) around the edges working its' way inward sooner than any other cupcake ( besides the diabetic ones) I've tried.

I use my favorite cake recipe for cupcakes with no problems.

Hi icon_smile.gif

I've made Billy's cupcakes, and they were great! I used 1Tbsp of baking powder and had no problem with them. They were delicious. I've also made the whimisical bakehouse vanilla cupcakes, and they were really good too. Here's a thread that might help (I've posted the WBH recipe in this thread, and there are others as well). Plus, jkalman posted a great pic of her taste test. Hope this help!

all4cake.. thanks for your posting. I was just reading the reviews of Magnolia's and then got your feedback.. ok, will not try that tomorrow.. maybe another time when I can afford a possible 'disappointment'.

Jan, it's been some time since I visited CC. Good that you're always there and so reliable thumbs_up.gif .. and a very happy birthday & Valentine's Day should I not check in.

Hi again icon_smile.gif

Glad the recipe is appealing. When I made them, I warmed the milk to just over body temp. 110F should be warm but certainly not scalding hot or boiling. Hope that helps! They were really easy to make. Good luck!
