Under the cupcake section there is section that is called something like a serious disscussion about cupcakes. You should start there. They have so much information there. HTH

I use cake recipes all the time for my cupcakes. But not all my cake recipes. Cakes tend to need to be more dense for holding up under fondant/stacking/etc, and cupcakes are usually more soft and fluffy (IMO). We like our cakes to bake up flat so that we dont have to level off so much, cupcakes have a little dome. I use the herseys recipe (on the back of their cocoa box) for both because it is very moist, and a texture I like. If you bump up the temp for the cupcakes (350-400) it will create the dome, if you cake at 325 for cake, you will have a nice even cake. I'm no professional, this is just some of the things I do. I have a carrot cake recipe I could NEVER use for cupcakes. HTH. I also recommend reading the cupcake forums.

my cupcake never have dome, I think it's because I use an egg replacer instead of normal egg due to my daughter's allergy
