This recipe makes two dozen cupcakes, more than I usually make at once but I'm making a dozen for Filter Cafe's last week end and a dozen to decorate as monsters for a friends party. So if you only need a dozen, half this recipe- duh. You'll still have a crap load of frosting, but if you like to pile it on you'll be glad.
