White Cupcakes is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best white cupcake recipe! For those of you who gave it one star, you did something wrong. If it was hard, you deflated the egg whites when you folded them in. If it was dry, you either over baked it or your oven temp is off. Simply following the recipe is not enough-you need to know proper cake making techniques. Sorry if I offend, but this is a good recipe that has been tested by experts before publishing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have heeded the warnings. And three bowls? I think the positive reviews are full of bull. These cupcakes are white. The color is spot on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from For the most part a simple recipe, however, horrible texture and taste! Doesn't really deserve one star...Dropped one on the floor as I was going to throw the batch out and it sounded like a rock hit the floor. Very dry, tasted like flour...And I followed the recipe without a single change. Never again!
