This recipe only yields one dozen (12) cupcakes. Double ingredients if necessary. The recipe as-is would be perfect for 24 mini-cupcakes.
The first time I made these, I actually used just 1/2 stick of butter (vs. a full stick) and it was still delicious. I upped the recipe to a full stick because it makes it easier to mix, but I suggest trying both to see which you prefer.
For garnish, I added fun, colorful "Jersey Shore" sprinkles from Sweetapolita.
