Basic Yellow Cupcakes
Here is another old recipe that I never posted.  Now that life is so busy, I am really glad that I had a few recipes in reserve.  I guess it pays to plan ahead, be prepared, etc.
Homemade Yellow Cupcakes

These are a great alternative to a store bought yellow cake mix.  They have a lovely homemade taste and are light and fluffy, just like a yellow cake should be.    Top them with store bought or homemade frosting.  Be creative and turn them into a work of art.  In my house sprinkles is about as fancy as I get.
