    The frosting recipe calls for one stick of butter and 8 tablespoons of butter. Is that a miss print?

    The clove amount seemed a little overwhelming just curious why no vanilla or other extract

    • Hi Debbie! This is the blend of spices we use all the time for this cake/cupcake! Though, it definitely is to-taste. The cupcakes really don't need any other additives because, with the cream cheese, it's creamy, sweet, and perfectly spiced! We hope you give these wonderful cupcakes a try.
