I tried this at home and it came out amazing the cupcakes came out very fluffy and the texture was amazing and outstanding.The best part for me was cracking the eggs and icing them,even though I ruined one of them as I iced it messily and very weird.
I recommend this to all people who love to bake cupcakes or even icing!
