Butter Cupcakes is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good! Made these to practice my decorating skills and although they are quite good, they are a bit too sweet for my taste as I will be topping them with more sugar in the buttercream frosting. I will probably add a bit more vanilla next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT CUPCAKES I really loved these cupcakes. They are light and fluffy, moist, buttery and just perfect. They stayed soft and fluffy through to the next day. I got exactly 36 large cupcakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great butter cupcake recipe. They are very moist and the amount of sugar is perfect. I added a little bit of orange food coloring to the batter to make it more fun and they turned out great. I'm a beginner and this was easy to make for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely needs more sugar!! Kind of disapointed at how little flavor it has... It is fluffy and not dry, really good texture but needs more sugar and more flavor... Maybe with the frosting it will get better.. I hope!
