The Best Basic Yellow Cupcake

My sons 7th birthday was a couple of weeks ago.  I wanted to do something nice for his classmates at school and to help him celebrate his birthday with them.  I decided on making cupcakes for them all to enjoy.   I decided on my basic yellow cupcake recipe as I wasn’t too sure of allergies in the classroom.    These cupcakes are delicious , moist and so simple to make.  I did a little extra with them and made some fondant decorate them with you can find that recipe here.    And this is the final product.   Recipe is below
