  15. I'm glad someone out there tried Wilton's recipe and got success! I was a little worried about making the butter cupcakes because of the high proportion of butter & eggs in the recipe (very paranoid about overflow), but I think I will try them now. Thanks for posting the recipe, and by the way-pink frosting with sprinkles are the BEST! :D
